Stacey Wiedower

Stacey Wiedower is an author, freelance writer and interior designer based in Memphis, Tenn. Day to day, she covers design, architecture, art and lifestyle topics for newspapers and magazines, including spotlighting businesses, nonprofits, and companies making a difference in our community through our cityCURRENT GOODworks column. She also writes regular home features for The Commercial Appeal.

She earned a BA in Journalism in 1998, and in past years has worked as a newspaper reporter, magazine editor, corporate communications writer and managing editor of a daily business paper. In 2008, she earned an MS in home design & merchandising and spent three years doing “field study” (i.e., working as a staff designer) at a traditional Southern interior design firm – one of the coolest experiences of her career. Now, she puts everything she learned at that job into play as she interviews designers, tours amazing spaces and reports on the latest trends in the world of home style.

Her non-fiction and fiction work has garnered awards from the Tennessee Press Association, the Memphis Society of Professional Journalists and SOLA Writers. In 2014 her first completed novel was chosen as a second-round finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest, and in 2011  was chosen to participate in the Moss Workshop in Fiction at the University of Memphis with author Richard Bausch. She's active on Twitter (@staceywwriter), Facebook (facebook.com/StaceyWiedower.author) and Pinterest (swied1).
