Nancy L. Conyers

Hi, I’m Nancy Conyers and I want to welcome you to my Wider World.  I’ve crossed many ponds, having lived in fourteen cities on three continents and I’m obsessed with the difference between traveling to a destination versus living there.  I’m a writer, teacher, and I’m also obsessed with the craft and process of creative writing.  Thanks for dipping your toes in and joining me.

“Nancy Conyers writes from a deep well of experience. She’s seen a lot and has the gift of conveying what she has seen with clarity, grace, and purpose. I learn something new every time I read her writing. I am profoundly grateful for this–and for her.”

Deborah Johnson,

author of The Secret of Magic and The Air Between Us,

“Nancy Conyers is a world traveler for many years, and her writing echoes and enlarges her marvelous, often challenging, experiences. Her writing deeply expresses her truth, with her humor always skirting the edges. We see our world in new light via her eyes, her stories, her evident joy to be alive. In this time of life/death challenges globally, Ms. Conyers continues to celebrate la vida.”

Almaluz Villanueva,

author of Soft Chaos and Luna’s California Poppies,

“I was proud to publish Nancy Conyers’ excellent essay, “Christmas in October,” in the Los Angeles Review of Books during my time as Creative Nonfiction editor, and it has since been a pleasure to watch her writing continue to blossom.”

Gina Frangello,

author of Every Kind Of Wanting Blow and Your House Down,


“People often ask me why I write, and I usually answer: for a wider world. It is my dream.”
