Judith Hertog was born in Amsterdam and moved to Israel as a teenager. She lived in China, Tibet, and Taiwan, and ended up settling in Vermont with her family. Judith can communicate in six languages but lost track of who or where she is. She writes to find out. 

Judith teaches creative writing and works as a freelance writer. Her writing has appeared in The Sun, Zone 3, Tablet Magazine, Tricycle, The Southampton Review, Tin House and many other publications. In addition to being a writer, Judith also loves photography.

In 2015 Judith completed an interview/photography project portraying people in Israel: Views from a Real Place.

Judith studied History and Religion at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. She also obtained graduate degrees in journalism and TESOL from Indiana University, and an MFA in creative writing from Bennington College.
