Favorite Places in Alaska:
Yakutat, under the gaze of Mount Saint Elias; anywhere in Chugach State Park.
Kathleen works as the Program Coordinator of UAA's Low-Residency MFA Program in Creative Writing, a position she's held since fall 2007. She also serves as an adjunct faculty member teaching undergraduate creative writing at UAA. As a nonfiction writer, her work has explored Alaska-Russia history, the natural world, food, travel, and spirituality. She's published essays in Creative Nonfiction; We Alaskans; Cirque; Alaska Airlines Magazine; 49 Writers; and various newspapers and anthologies. As a Pittsburgh native, Alaska had never really entered her imaginative map, until she read John McPhee's, Coming Into the Country, in 1978. Because of that book, she realized how much she had to learn, and so she packed her bags and headed north, eager for whatever Alaska's land and people would teach her.
