Jennifer Gersten is a writer and violinist. In May 2016, she graduated from Yale, where she majored in English with a concentration in creative nonfiction and edited the Yale Daily News Magazine. She is currently pursuing a master’s in violin performance at Stony Brook University.

Jennifer is an assistant managing editor at Guernicaan online magazine focused on art and politics. She has written for Guernica, WQXR, NPR Music, The Blade in Toledo, OH, and publications across Yale, including the Yale Daily News, The Yale Literary Magazine, and The New Journal. Most recently, she served as NPR Music’s summer editorial intern in Washington, D.C.

She was named a finalist in the 2015 Norman Mailer Four-Year College Writing Awards for an essay about her mother, an amateur ballroom dancer, that served as the genesis for her senior thesis project on the Asian American ballroom community of Flushing, NY.
