Humor Writer of the Month: Linda Presto

Award-winning writer Linda Presto is the author of Where’s My Wine Glass?!, Getting Your Kid to College Without Losing Your Mind (Woodhall Press), described as a frolicking collection of humorous essays for parents of children who are prepping for, leaving for or attending college. As a long-time college coach, private tutor and parent of two failure-to-launch college graduates, Presto’s sarcastic voice, no-nonsense tone and years of experience deliver a much-needed respite from the insanity and competition of acceptance to college.

Her debut book garnered a Silver Award in the humor category from the Nonfiction Authors Association. In 2021, she received an honorable mention in the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop competition, A Hotel Room of One’s Own: The Erma Bombeck | Anna Lefler Humorist-in-Residence Program. In other honors, she received the Richard Drukker Journalism Award and Scholarship in 2003.

Linda received an MFA in writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Her business, College Coaching with Care, is a premiere tutoring and coaching service providing expertise in SAT/ACT prep, college/scholarship searches, applications, essays, resumes, interview preparation, personal statements, strategy, as well as school and career planning.
