Mary Samuel is an emerging: poet, youth worker, artist, musician, educator, wanderer, sister, daughter, auntie, friend, lover, and woman from Alaska sipping tea on the west coast of Ireland on this rainy Saturday.
Wendy Brooker lives and works in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. Her day (and night) job gives her the opportunity to travel around and really get to know her corner of Alaska. Most of her time is spent on report writing, but she loves to take time to write more creatively for personal expression. She is currently making queries to publish a children’s book, actually a book for young and old alike, about unconditional love.
Patricia Pierce is retired from the Alaska Air National Guard. She attends the University of Alaska Anchorage as a full time student, pursuing her dream to write. Patricia is a senior in the Undergraduate English Literature program with Creative Writing as her minor. Patricia also attends Alaska Pacific University taking an Advanced Creative Writing Workshop. Patricia has one grown daughter, two spoiled cats and a fabulous husband of 18 years. Patricia and her husband now reside in Anchorage, after they spent seven years living year round in the Kenny Lake area of Alaska.
Megan Zlatos is the Director of Grants and Special Projects at the Alaska Humanities Forum. Her career path is best described as “the scenic route”: a road that involved everything from coordinating study abroad programs in Europe to developing an employee evaluation system at Google. Her writing interests are equally eclectic.
