My name is Hayley Wood.

I’ve told 1 story. I joined Cowbird on October 9, 2011.

I was born and raised in Keene, NH, a college town in southern NH. Attended Marlboro College in VT and then the University of New Hampshire for my graduate degree in literature. My love of 19th century novels has seen me through a lot of living and is still a mainstay. I work as a program officer at Mass Humanities, the NEH-affiliated humanities council for the state of MA, and I make as much art and music and good food as I can when I'm not at my desk. I'm married to Mark Roessler, my college sweetheart, who is a writer and is currently obsessed with the Paris Commune and early hot air ballooning. We have a son named Otis, a gentle giant of a kid who is an astute observer of human nature. My favorite kind of writing is the personal letter.
