Sam Chaska Howard

Creative Writer

United States

Sam Howard (he/they) is a Venice, CA native and recent graduate of University of California, Santa Cruz, where he obtained his Bachelors of Arts in Literature, focusing specifically on creative writing. He's currently attending Antioch University Los Angeles where he's pursuing his MFA in Creative Writing. Having learned to read at the age of 2, reading and writing have been lifelong passions of his. He has been published in the Red Wheelbarrow Anthology and has read live three times at the Living Writers Series.
His work draws from his life experiences as an autistic, transgender, black and indigenous person growing up in the early 2000s and the lack of representation that he faced within books he read. As a result, his creative projects focus heavily on #OwnVoices storytelling for young and new adults.
He's currently working on various projects including scripts, novels, and short stories.
