SuperStar "SuperStar" Reviewer: Linda Wisniewski

Linda Wisniewski     I share an empty nest with my retired scientist husband in Bucks County, PA. As a long time member of Story Circle Network, I have benefited greatly over the years. I've facilitated an e-circle, written book reviews, and was one of the editors of the Kitchen Table Stories anthology. I have taken online classes, served on the board, was a contributing editor of Story Circle Journal, and have been one of the judges for the annual memoir contest.

I write feature stories and collaborate on a mental health column for the Bucks County Herald and write a column on local women writers for the Bucks County Women's Journal. I also teach memoir workshops throughout the Philadelphia area. My work has appeared in publications as diverse as the Christian Science Monitor, the Philadelphia Inquirer, gravel, Massage, and The Quilter. My memoir, Off Kilter: A Woman's Journey to Peace with Scoliosis, Her Mother, and Her Polish Heritage was published in 2008 by Pearlsong Press. You can read about it here. My as yet unpublished novel, Where the Stork Flies, is a finalist for the 2015 Eludia Award. If you'd like to know more about me and read my blog, please visit my website.
