All writing and photos on this site are original, created by Michele Oberholtzer. I am a writer, activist, social worker, engineer and environmentalist based out of Detroit and Hamtramck.
I am not a writer: I was not trained to do it, I rarely get paid for it, my work is not widely read. And yet, I am a writer because I do it: earnestly and often, as best I know how. These pieces collected on this site cover many topics, styles and experiences. No one piece is representative and it’s not terribly well organized, so go exploring and I hope you can find something interesting, relatable, original. Thank you.
