Author Bio


This section should include a 100-200-word bio describing you as a writer. Author bios usually summarize one’s education, professional experiences and attainments, and creative interests. Here’s an example from St. Olaf professor and local writer Diane Leblanc:

Diane LeBlanc is the author of two poetry chapbooks, Dancer with Good Sow (2008) and Hope in Zone Four (1998). Awards include fellowships from the Wyoming Arts Council, a Brenda Ueland Prose Prize, a Robert Penn Warren Award, and a Pushcart Prize nomination for poetry. Diane received the Bechtel Prize from Teachers & Writers Collaborative for her essay “Weaving Voices: Writing as a Working Class Daughter, Professor, and Poet.”  Her poetry and prose appear in Bellingham Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review, The Journal, Natural Bridge, and other journals. Diane directs the writing program at St. Olaf College, where she teaches writing and gender studies.
