Writing for me is a means of creative expression, shared connection, and deeper understanding. A growing number of pieces I have written have found homes in various publications. Some began as blog posts here, others were long, in-depth undertakings. I’ve listed a few of the more recent ones below.
The Hopper, a literary magazine put out by Green Writers Press in Brattleboro, Vermont published my essay Two Ways to Take in March, 2016. This essay emerged from my M.S. thesis/book project and is all about two very different ways to go about collecting and processing sap from sugar maple trees.
I write regular missives and articles for Missoula Valley Lifestyle. Here are a few of the more recent articles:
Perfect Moments October, 2017–On the ephemerality of perfect moments
Thank You, Farmer April, 2017 –On why farmers are invaluable and should always be thanked
Less Is More February, 2017 –On integrating our homes into our cities and using our waste to build
Christmas in the Desert November, 2016 –On Christmas traditions with my grandpa in the desert
On the Wild River October, 2016 –About a July, 2016 trip on the South Fork of the Flathead
I have also published an essay and photos in Camas: Nature of the West a wonderful place-based literary magazine published out of the Environment Studies Program at the University of Montana.
