Wendi Stewart writes a weekly column for the Fort Frances Times (Wendi With An Eye), writing personal essays where she chews on life’s questions and absurdities. She blogs at wendistewart.wordpress.com. Her first novel, Meadowlark, was published by NeWest Press, shortlisted for the Kobo Emerging Writer Prize and was named one of National Post's Best Books of 2015. Meadowlark was translated to German by Nagel & Kimche and released in Switzerland. Wendi served as writer-in-residence at Berton House in Dawson City.
Wendi is the mother of four daughters who provide endless “grist for the mill”. She lives in Nova Scotia but the farm on Rainy River in Northwestern Ontario will always be "home".
