Michele Cantos Garcia

member since 2024


Michele Cantos has paid the bills as a magazine editor, freelance writer, and program manager and is currently a Peer Artist Leader in book inc’s Memoir Incubator, where she is writing a “Latina coming-of-age in America” memoir that grapples with ethnicity, class, and womanhood and is infused with a dash of magical realism. When that writing endeavor becomes too unwieldy, Michele resorts to journaling, poetry, singing, and meditating. At the end of 2023, Michele traded Brooklyn’s big city lights for the cozy charm of Red Bank, NJ, where she is enjoying beach walks, easy hikes, and meeting new people. Michele’s family is originally from Ecuador, and she holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Syracuse University.
