Kelly Norris


Kelly Norris is a teacher, mother, writer, and activist living in Amherst, Massachusetts. Several of her essays dealing with anti-racism in the classroom have appeared in anthologies and online journals. As a Teacher Consultant with the National Writing Project, she’s presented workshops for fellow educators on topics such as teaching for social justice, using hip-hop in the classroom, and addressing privilege with privileged groups. Kelly holds an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from Lesley University and is working on a second book of nonfiction, a collection of profiles of radical people living outside of mainstream. When she’s not writing, she can be found hiking trails, sitting on her yoga mat, subverting the dominant paradigm, and looking for new places to travel.
