Cathi Murphy

Cathi Murphy is from Ireland but lives in San Francisco. She completed an M.A. in Literature and Creative Writing at SFSU and hopes to return soon to complete an M.F.A. Currently she teaches writing to young people, ranging from elementry to high school, at a learning center in the East Bay. In what seems like a previous life, she taught political science and sociology at The National University of Ireland, Galway. In between, she worked as a bartender in NYC and occasionally sang in her friend’s band. Her favorite karoke song is “These Boots Are Made for Walking” and she likes strawberries very much, almost as much as oysters. Her poetry has appeared in Bombay Gin and Fourteen Hills.
