Stephen Wing gave up a 12-year career as a hitchhiker in 1990 when he met his wife, Dawn Aura, and settled in Atlanta. He now works as a newsletter editor and recycling coordinator at New Leaf Distributing Co., a wholesale distributor of metaphysical and holistic literature. He is a senior editor of New Leaf’s magazine Evolve!
A lifelong writer, he is the author of Four-Wheeler & Two-Legged: Poems (Southeastern Front, 1992, now out of print) and Crossing the Expressway: Poems from the Open Road, a record of his travels by thumb (Dolphins & Orchids Publishing, 2001).
Other writings include In the Presence of the Disappeared, a chapbook-length poem about a visit with a peace delegation to Colombia, South America, and Proof of the Miraculous: Campfire Poetry from the Rainbow Gatherings, documenting 25 years of countercultural gatherings in the National Forests. An unfinished epic novel, Last Testament: A Melodrama of the Post-Petroleum Era, is unfolding in serial installments on his web site, where many of his poems, articles and essays may be found.
Wing has served a variety of causes as a writer, editor, and activist. Some current projects are “Earth Poetry with Stephen Wing,” an ecologically-themed poetry presentation; Gaia-Love Graffiti, a collection of original bumper stickers; and interfaith celebrations of the Solstices and Equinoxes in Atlanta.
In 2006, he became a cancer survivor and celebrated his fiftieth birthday.
