Meet Naomi Kinsman

Naomi is an author, design thinker and coach for creative minds. Her books range from the From Sadie’s Sketchbook series for middle grade readers to activity books such as the award-winning Spilled Ink, a Writer’s Commonplace Book. Naomi also collaborated as a co-writer with Natalie Grant on the Glimmer Girls mystery series.

After over a decade of writing and directing plays for young people, and teaching as a resident artist in classrooms across the country, Naomi developed Writerly Play, a story-based approach to creative development. In classrooms, Writerly Play provides games, improvisational strategies and tools to teach thinking and writing skills. Outside of classrooms, Writerly Play supports people of all ages in the development of their creative thinking skills.

When Naomi isn’t speaking, acting, teaching or writing, she explores ways to bring creativity into the everyday. She’s a half-marathon runner, a guitar player, a sketch-noter, a tap-dancer, an outdoor explorer, and a life-long learner. Naomi has a BA in Theatre Arts from Seattle Pacific University, studied theatre with the Piven Theatre Workshop and ACT, and has an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Hamline University.
