“Travel gave me the courage to write; feminism, the courage to look differently.”

Kristin Winet is a writer and teacher who lives in the Sonoran Desert. In her day job, she teaches writing at the University of Arizona and trains graduate students in writing pedagogy and inclusive teaching. Her travel writing, which has won awards from The North American Travel Journalists’ Association and Travelers’ Tales Press, has been published in places like The Smart Set, Witness Magazine, and Atlas Obscura and taken her to over 30 countries. In her scholarly work, she considers feminist approaches to travel writing and aims to create more inclusive, equitable spaces in travel and education. Since the pandemic, she has added two little ones to her family, so travel looks a little different–and a lot more chaotic!–right now.
