Jowita Bydlowska is the author of Possessed (October 2022), the best-selling memoir Drunk Mom, and the best-selling novel GUY. She's also a prolific short-story writer, journalist and a professor at the Creative School at TMU.
She's currently working on a novel tentatively called Monster and a non-fiction book about the topic of shame.
Jowita is also an excellent editor with more than 20 years of experience. She has an exceptional taste in fiction and extensive knowledge of the publishing industry. As a mentor, she offers one-on-one consulting services, from creating an outline, to developing a proposal, to editing, to providing feedback on what you have already. She also works as a ghostwriter and has published a number of successful ghostwriting projects (including an award-winning memoir).
“While the title suggests a simple autobiographical autopsy of motherhood marred by alcoholism, Bydlowska’s memoir delivers far more – a human portrait
of the disease.”
The New York Times
“Drunk Mom is a rarity in this age of constant overshares—a work that had me questioning, “Does she want us to know this? Should I know this?” as I read it. …At times, it’s also a shockingly amusing read, sprinkled with wry, dark humour. I couldn’t put it down.”
