Sarah Rose Haas

sarahHeadshot_Option2_SQUARE.jpgSarah Haas is a writer living off-grid in an Earthship in New Mexico, a mile or so from the nearest neighbor, precisely where the forest intersects the desert. Her recent essays and reviews have appeared in Literary Hub, Longreads, The Rumpus, Adroit Journal, The Los Angeles Review of Books, Entropy, Rain Taxi, and Tupelo Quarterly, among others. Her first book, her memoir Where I Lived & What I Lived For, is seeking representation. 

Before assuming a more literary focus, Sarah worked as a journalist and weekly columnist for Boulder Weekly (“Weed Between the Lines” in which I covered drug policy and culture) and The Mountain Ear (“Mountain Folk Tales” in which she profiled a different person each week, people she walked by in the street, met at a bar, etc.). In 2019, she was awarded the Colorado Press Association’s “Rising Star Award”. 

And, before becoming a writer Sarah was: a diner waitress, manager of a homeless shelter kitchen, a cupcake baker, a caretaker of horses, a carpenter’s apprentice, a nonprofit manager, a potter, an artist and then an artist’s assistant, a grocery store clerk, and a library staffer. For some reason, she also has an MBA in entrepreneurship.
