Dina Suzanne Towbin
I have been a technical writer and editor for more than 20 years, with some creative work folded into the mix. I manage a consulting firm in international development. A few years back, while working in South Sudan, I wrote down the stories of a group of street orphans to help them with fundraising; they supported themselves by performing. Two of my articles on the challenges of working in South Sudan were published in the International Finance Corporation’s Smart Book: Rebuilding for Tomorrow. More recently, as part of a group of writers, I have been doing more creative writing—haiku and more haiku poems, kidlit, a memoir, short stories, and a murder mystery. I love to travel (when it’s possible) and enjoy spending time in Dar, Tanzania; Lima, Peru; New York City; Paris, France; and Washington, DC.
