Kim Hedzik is an essayist and feature writer with a Journalism degree from the Ohio University E.W. Scripts School of Journalism. Her essays have appeared in: McSweeneys,,, The Marin Independent Journal, Funny Times, and on this blog. Her feature stories have appeared in Dramatist magazine, Callboard magazine, FunWorld, Perfusion Life, and in a start-up, niche magazine published by Decided Excellence Media.

She is also a SAG-AFTRA member with a penchant for accents. Her credits include: Two years portraying the lead, Prudence, in Christopher Durang’s comedy, Beyond Therapy, in San Francisco. She played various roles in the musical spoof Real Blondes, performed improvisational comedy with the troupe PyschoChuckles in Washington, DC, portrayed talk show hostess April Lambert in Wendy Wasserstein’s stage production of The Heidi Chronicles, played Renee in the Odd Couple, was a trade show presenter (Las Vegas) with Jack Morton Productions, and a television commercial actress for Toyota with Steve Young.

She is a grad student wanna be with an obsession for learning. A foodie who wants her own cooking show. She writes because she failed college accounting and never got over it. She concentrates her time on developing essays and parenting her two typical girls and special needs son. Other topics of interest include: overcoming struggles, aging, defining success, making choices, happiness, education, culture, values, great books, and probably others she can’t think of right now. She lives with her husband and their three children in the Southeast.
