Kristin Wagner has been published at Full Grown People (twice now!), The Manifest-Station, The Refresh, The Mighty, Mothers Always Write, Literary Mama, FibroDaily.com, Mamanomnom through Mamalode, Quail Bell Magazine and The Rumpus. Her essay for The Rumpus, “Finding Shelter”, won in the Editor’s Choice and Essay categories of Beyond Your Blog’s Hall of Fame in June of 2017. She is currently 52,000 words into a memoir/essay collection about living with chronic illness, tentatively entitled All That I Can Do, and All That I Can’t: Essays on Illness. But, Kristin is notoriously shaky on titles and will probably change it for a fourth time soon.
Kristin began writing about family and food and pop culture as soon as she could spell. Essays about her two children came a while after that, and pieces about chronic illness after that. She was a high school English teacher in a former life. While her super supportive husband is traveling for work, she sneaks in writing while watching DanTDM YouTube videos with her two boys. And after they go to bed. And occasionally during swim lessons when one son has finally jumped off the diving board on his own, and she has missed it, and the son in question pouts. A lot.
This is my tip jar!
