A professor in the MFA program at the University of Baltimore, Winik was the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Creative Non-Fiction and has been inducted into the Texas Institute of Letters.

Her essays and articles have been published in The New York Times Magazine, O, Salon, Real Simple, More, The Utne Reader, The Baltimore Sun, to name a few. Her 15 years of commentaries for All Things Considered are collected on the npr.org website. Winik’s other books include Telling (Random House); New York Times Notable Book First Comes Love (Random House, 1996); Child magazine’s “Best Parenting Book of the Year” The Lunch-Box Chronicles (Random House); Rules for the Unruly (Simon and Schuster); Above Us Only Sky (Seal Press), and The Glen Rock Book of the Dead (Counterpoint), one of More magazine’s “Ten Best Books of 2008.” She has also published two books of poetry, Nonstop and Boycrazy.
