Jill Winkowski

Jill is a mom (with two GREAT kids), a traveler, a linguist, and a poet. She hosts a monthly poetry workshop, teaches yoga at a museum, and has a day job in technical writing. She received her undergraduate degree in English and German and has two master's degrees, one in education and the other in applied linguistics (that one absolutely rocked).
As for her writing process, she says, "I write from the impulse that overwhelms me and then heals me."
