“I believe creating links,
rooting people to place,
through words and work,
will bring us closer
to the core of humanity.”

Annette Januzzi Wick is a writer, teacher, speaker, and author of two memoirs on love and loss, I’ll Be in the Car and I’ll Have Some of Yours. A combination of Italian roots, small-town footholds, and urban living, her writings span the arts, women’s issues, cities, aging and memory, the Italian American experience and food.

She’s a frequent contributor to Cincinnati.com, with work appearing in Cincinnati Magazine, Shanti Arts, 3rd Act Magazine, nextavenue.org, Promedica, Creative Nonfiction, Belt Magazine, Ovunque Siamo, Italy Segreta, and Italian Americana (forthcoming).

Her works in progress include Something Italian: Stories and Recipes from the Family Table and a debut novel, The Washerwoman. Visit the Books page to learn more.



“I’m charmed by emptying out a backpack, sand pouring forth, wondering which beach, ocean, stretch of wet-dry it came from. I leave these little pockets of the sea to live on my suitcase for the next time and the next and the next. It’s like a surprise before and after every trip.”
