A three-time veteran of AROHO at Ghost Ranch, Ginny Bitting has always loved both music and the written word. A singer, sailor, mother, and retired teacher, she is currently thrashing out her memoir, Through the Cut, a story of navigation on the water and through the soul. She fell in love with her husband and the sea on a weekend sail to Long Island on his 20-foot boat. Over the next ten years, on bigger boats with their daughter Adrienne, and one cat or another, they sailed the East Coast, eventually spending a year voyaging through the Bahamas.
Her work has been published in This is College Writing and Confluencia in the Valley, an anthology of work from poets and writers connected with Naugatuck Valley Community College. She has participated in the Connecticut Writing Project and taught in Stonington Public Schools for 34 years. Ginny lives, writes and sails in eastern Connecticut.
