Author Biography

Poet Anne Coray was born in a log cabin on Qizhjeh Vena (Lake Clark), Alaska, where she lives today with her husband and fellow author Steve Kahn. Her writing is known for its depictions of landscapes--both physical and emotional--as well as its examination of change, loss, and survival. Coray has noted that her primary motive for writing is to change the world; as if it were possible, through written expression, to change humanity's genetic code. Her poetry as appeared in publications such as Southern Review, Poetry, and North American Review, and on the web site Verse Daily. Her poetry collections include: Bone Strings (2005), Violet Transparent (2010), and A Measure's Hush (2011). She also co-edited Crosscurrents North (2008), a collection of essays and poems.

Coray received her undergraduate degree from the University of Washington and an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Alaska, Anchorage. Her work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, and she has been the recipient of grants and a fellowship from the Alaska State Council on the Arts and an Individual Artist Project Award from the Rasmuson Foundation.
