Theo Greenblatt writes both fiction and literary nonfiction. She holds an AS in Fashion Merchandising from Chamberlayne Junior College c. 1978 and, after several interesting diversions (punk rock devotee, kibbutznik, retail wizard, single parent), completed a BA in English from Roger Williams University, and an MA and PhD from the University of Rhode Island, focusing in Rhetoric and Composition and Creative Nonfiction respectively. Since 2002 she has taught composition at the US Naval Academy Preparatory School, in Newport, RI, where she indulges in both literary and sartorial expression.
While a book-length memoir on her counterculture adolescence awaits the love and attention of just the right press, her work appears in Driftwood Press, The Worcester Review, Harvard Review, two anthologies of women's fiction, and several other esteemed venues. At URI she won numerous awards in fiction, nonfiction, and scholarly writing, and her short memoir “True But Incomplete” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. She is currently working on a second memoir based on her years as a member of an Israeli kibbutz in the 1980s.
Theo lives in Rhode Island with one cantankerous cat and a herd of dust bunnies. She has three adult children whom she will always consider her best work.
