Carissa Wilburn


Carissa Wilburn’s love for writing began as soon as she was old enough to hold a pen.

Her obsession with books led her to spend much of her childhood at the library, and eventually encouraged her to study English at California Lutheran University, where she received her Bachelor of Arts and fulfilled a childhood dream of working in a library.  Her love of writing has earned Carissa several honors and awards for creative writing and poetry.

After graduation, God led Carissa to RK Media, where she puts her passion for words to work serving many of the prominent voices in Christian media. When she isn’t writing, you’ll likely find Carissa’s nose buried in one of the books from her extensive collection. Her other hobbies include hiking, cooking, singing along to Broadway musicals, and spending time with her husband, Zach, and their beautiful daughter, Wynri.
