About the featured reader:
Erin Fristad survived fifteen years as a deckhand on commercial fishing and research vessels. She chased herring in Togiak, Alaska; crab off the Columbia River; salmon more places than she can remember; and for five years collected scientific data in Puget Sound. Eventually, the tide brought her to Port Townsend, Washington, where she continues to write, teach, and work as campus director of Goddard College. Erin was a subject in the documentary film, Fisher Poets. Her poems and essays have been published in numerous anthologies and journals including Rosebud, Americas Review, Blue Collar Review, Hanging Loose, Seattle Review, Working the Woods, Word the Sea, New Poets of the American West, and Hooked! True Stories of Obsession, Love and Death from Alaska's Commercial Fishermen and Women.
