About Nicole


I’m a writer and college writing instructor, currently living and working in Colorado. I’m in my 14th year of teaching comp/rhet/digital studies at CU Denver. I feel incredibly lucky to have a job that centers on reading, writing, and mentoring other storytellers and technologists.NicolePiaseckiWriter

Teaching also inspires me to learn more, read more, write more, and put my work out into the world. To date, my creative writing has been featured in Literary MamaLongreads, Hippocampus Magazine, Motherwell Magazine, Word Riot, Shadowbox Magazine, Statement, Gertrude Press, and Brevity blog. My essay, “Maybe We Can Make a Circle” was nominated for the Pushcart Prize by Hippocampus Magazine.

I’m currently at work on a collection of essays.

I serve as a Senior Editor for Copper Nickel literary magazine.
