I am Wendy Kennar — mother, wife, and freelance writer in Los Angeles. I was also a public school teacher for twelve years. I’ve always been described as “quiet” — the truth is, I’m usually just biting my tongue. I’ve got lots to say, I just prefer to write it.
A few fun facts about me: I have never learned to whistle, I prefer sunflowers to roses, think chocolate is okay at any meal, and have spent my life living within the same zip code.
Here, you’ll find my weekly blog as well as links to previously published personal essays found in anthologies, print magazines, and online sources.
