About Judith Ford
Judith Ford is a writer of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. She has taught creative writing to middle and high school students as well as a college-level course on turning personal experience into memoir or fiction. She has numerous publications in small press magazines and has been nominated twice for Pushcart prizes, one in fiction and one in poetry. She won a fiction award from Willow Review in spring of 2005. Her poetry was included in a collection, Burning Oak, coauthored with Martin Jack Rosenblum.
Ford is also a psychotherapist and educator, specializing in the treatment of eating disorders. She has taught classes in psychotherapy theory and methods, given lectures on many eating-disorder-related topics and has led workshops in the use of the arts in therapy. She currently is semi-retired from her therapy practice, offering classes, lectures and supervision about eating disorder treatment and prevention. She has limited her therapy practice in order to spend more time writing.
She and her husband live in Wisconsin near the Lake Michigan shore with Pericles, a black lab, and a parrot named Bill. The last of her three children went off to college recently. Ford looks forward to filling the empty nest with a second dog, a short-story collection and a book of her poetry.
