Author Sara Goff spent seven years as a New York City fashion designer and merchandiser before leaving her career to make a difference in the world. She founded the global educational charity Lift the Lid, Inc. in 2010, which supports underprivileged schools and encourages young people to exercise their creative expression through writing.
Sara attended Sewanee Writers’ Conference and received two fellowships to Summer Literary Seminars in St. Petersburg, Russia and Nairobi, Kenya. While living in Manhattan, she especially loved her work as a writing instructor for Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen Writers Workshop, founded by author Ian Frazier, and for The National Arts Club’s creative writing program for students. She has been a guest speaker in colleges and inner-city high schools.
In 2019, Sara started an organization for political wellness and effective communication called Bridging Minds. Their active online discussion group of nearly 2200 members and growing — a positive place to share perspectives and compare facts — represents voices across America. Her novel “I Always Cry at Weddings” (WhiteFire Publishing, 2015) is a New York City tale about figuring out your purpose in life and finding love.
