Nancy Linnon

I started my career as a journalist for U.S. News & World Report and then followed my heart into teaching, via a master’s in teaching at Brown University. I’ve taught for 25 years in high schools, colleges, universities, and community venues and worked as a writer and editor inside organizations and as a freelancer. I furthered my love of writing and teaching by earning an MFA in creative nonfiction from Antioch University. My work has appeared in magazines and literary journals, including Creative Nonfiction, BrevityLos Angeles Review, Yoga International, Mothering, as well as several anthologies.


I  believe you have to write to figure out what you have to say—as opposed to knowing what you have to say and writing it down. This approach makes writing a tool for thinking and discovering that results in clear, authentic expression and a deeper connection to self. Whether you are want to publish your writing or use writing to improve your well-being, this philosophy is useful.


I hope this website provides an introduction to me and my work, but a conversation works best for answering specific questions and figuring out how working together might be a fit. Please contact me and we can set up a time to talk.
