Phyllis Oscar

Phyllis Oscar is hard at work on her memoir We Were That Family: Confronting A Murderous Legacy. Phyllis earned her MFA in Creative Nonfiction from Mills College in 2017, where she won the Melody Clarke Teppola Graduate Creative Writing Award in 2016. She challenges herself to read publicly and has done so at Inside StoryTime Reading Series, Octopus Literary Salon, bound together books, Laurel Bookstore, MFA Mixer 2.0, Mills College, and the San Francisco Zen Center residents’ skit night (yes, it’s a thing). She created and taught a Flash Nonfiction course as part of Project Verb, a Mills College community writing class. Phyllis has lived in San Francisco for 20 years and would like someday to be considered a local, though it’s hard to shake the epithet Phyllis from Philly . . . You can read – and hear Phyllis read – parts of We Were That Family: Confronting A Murderous Legacy at phylliswrites.wordpress.com.
