About Me
Z Jackson joined the Carnegie Center in November 2017 in the Development department. After five years of writing grants, fundraising, and managing the database, they transitioned roles to the Adult Programming and Outreach Director.

Z is a University of Kentucky graduate with degrees in English and Psychology. They spent many years before this managing the fiction section at a local bookstore. They are the Assistant Director of the Wildacres Writing Retreat & Workshop; a board member of the Lexington Writers Room; and a founding board member of the LGBTQ+  nonprofit pop-up bookshop Read with Pride. When they're not working on their novel, they mentor and teach writing classes on science fiction, fantasy, and horror. They delight in creating supportive environments for writers.

The Carnegie Center is home to writers, lifelong learners, & the Kentucky Writers Hall of Fame. We hope to see you soon!
