About | Contact

Hi. I'm Wilson Diehl. This is my blog. I live in Seattle, where I write, teach, and cut food into absurdly small pieces for my two young children. I have an MFA from the University of Iowa's Nonfiction Writing Program and have published my work in various places, including The New York TimesSalon, Babble, and Fit Pregnancy (even though I subsisted on Cheez-Its my first pregnancy and gained 50 pounds my second). My work also appears in a handful of literary magazines you've probably never heard of. I have a poem riding around on a bus somewhere and a short film that's played in some film festivals. Mostly, though, I write essays.

You can contact me at wilson.a.diehl[at]gmail.com. I'd love to hear from you.
