After receiving his PhD from the University of Nebraska in 1965, Wolk moved to Portland, Oregon, and began teaching at Portland State University. His interest in writing grew, but it was not until he co-taught a science fiction writing course with Ursula K. Le Guin that he realized he was meant to be a writer.
An avid cyclist, Wolk has been riding the same bicycle to Portland State University since 1969. Riding over 55,000 miles, he has had many interesting moments along the way?including talking a girl out of jumping off the Broadway Bridge. His love of cycling is tied to his feeling of being connected to the Portland area, and he brings this sense of connection to his stories, articles, and novels.
