Write  with  us.

Wander  with  us.

About Us

We believe that experiences in the wild are important for the body and the soul. The experiences and memories we have can act as a catalyst for the stories, poems, essays, paintings, music we write. The Wandering Writer is open to artists and writers of any form, anyone who wants to explore this wild world we inhabit.

Symbiosis

Nature is us. We are nature. Paying attention to its ebbs and flows, its seasons and its beauty, is healing. So is having a relationship with the wild.

Community

None of us can do it alone. And the more the merrier. Creators, activists, adventurous souls. All are welcome. Let’s create together.

Stephanie is a writer and editor who lives near Denver, Colorado. She holds an MFA degree in Creative Writing from Regis University.

 

Stephanie first fell in love with travel at 22, during a month-long trip through Europe. There, her world blew open, and she knew she wanted her life to always be pointed in the direction of the next adventure.

Stephanie is regularly saved by yoga and is searching for Truth. These are a few places she’s found it: the swaying of tree branches, the ocean, the laughter of her nieces and nephews, and her own heart, when she can be still enough to hear it. She loves hiking, hates small talk and wants to save the animals. Someday, she’ll learn how to tap dance. In the meantime, she keeps "scribbled secret notebooks" and knows everything is as it should be, even if she has a hard time remembering it.

About Stephanie

For as long as she can remember, Kateri has been pulled to all things creative.

 

She grew up in Colorado, hiking through the Rockies, developing a thirst for nature and adventure. 

It all started with her dad. He was a  painter and graphic designer who taught her to draw when she was just a little girl. After he died, it made her want to follow in his footsteps even more. He's the reason that she learned to love art. He's also the reason she writes and tries to understand her relationship to the outdoors and the mountains to the west of where she lives. 

Illustrating and designing professionally for six years, she eventually paired that with a love for writing four years ago. She earned an MFA from the Mile High MFA at Regis University and has had numerous essays published. 

When she’s not chasing mountain tops or sketching lakeside, I drink entirely too much coffee, bake excessively, and climb rocks.
