Naomi Kinsman

Naomi Kinsman is the author of Spilled Ink (winner of the 2009 Moonbeam Gold Medal for Educational/Activity book) as well as the From Sadie's Sketchbook series (Zondervan). Her newest books, the Glimmer Girls series (Zondervan), are collaboratively written with Grammy nominated artist, Natalie Grant.

As founder of the Society of Young Inklings, Naomi shares her passion for writing and creativity with young people across the country. SYI offers classes, mentorships and publishing programs all with the aim of empowering young authors to discover and share their unique voices. Naomi developed Writerly Play, the improv based methodology on which SYI's classes are based, and recently published a book about the approach. Naomi's background in improvisational and story theatre as well as her arts education work in Chicago, Portland and the Bay Area has convinced her that creative play is a doorway through which learners can find inspiration and transformative learning experiences.

Naomi has a BA in Theatre Arts from Seattle Pacific University, has studied theatre with the Piven Theatre Workshop and American Conservatory Theatre, and has an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Hamline University. She is the Regional Advisor for the San Francisco South chapter of SCBWI.
