Hi, I’m Chris
Christine Shields Corrigan
I’m a writer, teacher, mom, wife, and two-time cancer survivor. I write about family, parenting, illness, and resilient survivorship. My latest work, Memorare, an essay about the slow loss of my mother-in-law’s mind to Alzheimer’s dementia, will be included in The Writer’s Circle 2 Anthology to be published by Prime Press.
My work has appeared in many places, including The Brevity Blog, Dreamer’s Creative Writing, Grown & Flown, The Potato Soup Journal, Purple Clover, Ravishly.com, and Wildfire Magazine.
