Margi Fox teaches at Western Washington University, does professional writing and editing, and composes nonfiction. As a Senior Instructor of English, she specializes in technical and professional writing. She’s also taught a range of writing classes for organizations such as Whatcom Educational Credit Union and Whatcom Community College. Currently, Margi is working on a series of articles about local nonprofits. The profiles appear in Prime Time and Whatcom Magazine, publications of The Bellingham Herald. Other work includes creative nonfiction. Her essay, “God of Books” won a Literal Latte Award. Margi inherited the subject of wills from her family. In healing from difficult wills and celebrating the positive ones, she’s developed her main ideas about these final documents. She has researched the topic extensively and written The Afterlife of Wills, a book about the emotional and spiritual dimensions of final bequests (yet to be published).
