About the Author
S.L. Wisenberg is a one-breasted feminist born and raised in Texas and now "a Chicago literary icon" (Hypertext magazine). She is the author of The Wandering Womb: Essays in Search of Home, which won the Juniper Prize in nonfiction; a short-story collection, The Sweetheart Is In; and an essay collection, Holocaust Girls: History, Memory, & Other Obsessions. She edits Another Chicago Magazine and has received a Pushcart Prize and has won first place for a story in Narrative Magazine, as well as fellowships from the Illinois Arts Council, Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, National Endowment for the Humanities, and Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. The Wandering Womb was a finalist for the CHIRBy (Chicago Review of Books) award in nonfiction. She walks at least four miles daily, mostly at night, and tries to hypnotize wild rabbits. After working as an adjunct instructor all over town, she's now a writing coach and editor.
