Urszula Humienik fell in love with writing around the same time she fell in love with Gilbert Blythe and the Anne of Green Gables series, which was sometime around the 4th grade. She has lived many lives since then, but always returned to writing. After studying art at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and art therapy, pursuing several careers, and moving half way around the world to a small town in northeastern Poland, she decided to take this writing thing seriously. She writes short stories, flash fiction, and poetry while also working on her first novel, tentatively titled Native Landscapes, about an artist who graduates from art school in the US and moves to Krakow, Poland. Her writing influences are Margaret Atwood, Haruki Murakami, and W.G. Sebald.
When she’s not writing, she’s translating, proofreading or editing others’ work.
