Susan Scott is the editor of Body & Soul: Stories for Skeptics and Seekers (Caitlin Press, 2019)—an anthology in celebration of all things edgy, iffy, unorthodox, and sublime in the lives of women writers. Susan serves as TNQ’s lead nonfiction editor and as associate director of the Wild Writers Festival. As of 2018, she stepped up to direct Write on the French River Creative Writing Retreat, another TNQ outreach venture. She is scouting for a home for Sainted Dirt, her reckonings with land, language, family, and imperfect teaware. Photo by Ron Grimes.
