Wilda Bostwick started writing memoirs and personal essays for enjoyment after retiring from the corporate communications department of a major life insurance company. She recently began to seek opportunities for publication as a way to share her zest for life and love of continuous learning. Wilda draws on a deep well of experiences from her childhood on a dairy farm and her varied, often concurrent, roles of a geography teacher, mother of two children, graphic designer, cottager, communications specialist, community volunteer, gardener, chorister, and grandmother. A humorous personal essay about her move closer to her family was published in August 2016, in The Globe and Mail, the largest Canadian newspaper which reaches nearly seven million readers across print and digital platforms. She has a BA in Geography from the University of Western Ontario and an MBA from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
