Assistant to the Director • Writer • Teacher

Wenona Kimbro is a writer, visual artist, and researcher who has lived in Oregon all her life. She holds an MFA in fiction writing from Pacific University, with an undergraduate background in applied linguistics, painting, and creative writing. In addition to her work in fiction, Wenona also writes creative nonfiction and poetry, frequently inhabiting the space between genres and indulging in melodrama as a means of framing extremes of human experience. She is especially interested in art that deeply examines physical discomfort, isolation, and shame, and examines these states in her own work as pathways to an unexpected, deeper intimacy with the body.
