Dana’s love of family, nature, music, tradition, and life’s simple joys is the focal point of her poignant, compelling work, which has been featured in numerous journals, magazines, and anthologies, including the highly acclaimed Listen Here: Women Writing in Appalachia. She is a gifted teacher as well, sharing her passion for language from ESL classes at Lanier Technical College to residencies across the country.  Learn more about Dana at www.danawildsmith.com.
