Robin Clifford Wood
Robin Clifford Wood is a writer and professor of writing in central Maine. She has a BA from Yale University, an MA in English from the University of Rochester, and an MFA in creative writing from the University of Southern Maine's Stonecoast program.
Wood was a regular columnist for two years in central Massachusetts and for five years at Maine’s Bangor Daily News, where she continues to publish freelance work. Other publications include stories in Solstice Literary Magazine (“How Do You Help Your Parents Die?”) Port City Life magazine, Bangor Metro, Middlesex News, and Genesee Valley Parent Newsmagazine.
Wood has completed two non-fiction books – a memoir about the complexities of a mother-daughter relationship at the end of life, and a biography-memoir hybrid about Maine writer and poet, Rachel Field. She has given talks about her work in Florida, Massachusetts, and Maine. Visitors are welcome to visit her website at robincliffordwood.com.
Wood lives in Maine with her husband, dogs, and a rotating array of visiting children, in-laws, and granddogs that keep her young. Through her life and her writing, Wood seeks to discover more about the confounding complexity and simplicity of each person and every thing - death and laughter, dogs and snowflakes, music, magic, motherhood, cataclysm, and the smell of popcorn.
