Author's Bio

I hold a Ph.D. in Philosophy and an M.A. in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University. I have studied poetry and prose under Frances Mayes, Molly Giles and Leo Litwak at SFSU, Ron Hansen at University of California-Santa Cruz, Rick DeMarinis at University of Texas at El Paso, and David Gitin at Monterey Peninsula College.

My work has appeared in Simply Haiku, Contemporary Haibun, Haibun Today, bottle rockets, Frogpond, Poetry Midwest, Tattoo Highway, Rainbow Curve, and ZYZZYVA: West Coast Writers and Artists, among others, and anthologies like: AutoBioDiversity: True Stories from ZYZZYVA, ed. by Howard Junker; In the Arms of Words: Poems for Tsunami Relief, ed. by Amy Ouzoonian; and Taboo Haiku, ed. by Richard Krawiec. I am the author of a factual novel, Lie Under the Fig Trees/ Lying With Love, and an experimental haibun novel, Slopes of Lust. Overseas on a sabbatical, I currently teach my Write Like a Lover! workshop in Taiwan. Contact: wojnicki@yahoo.com/
