Fristad.headshotERIN FRISTAD is of the Northwest: she is the spawn of loggers, miners, and commercial fisherman — she grew up running wild through the wooded foothills of the Cascades on her horse. Erin survived fifteen years as deckhand on commercial fishing and research vessels and eventually returned to graduate school to earn her MFA. She works as a writer, educator and facilitator. Her poems appear in numerous journals and anthologies including Rosebud, americas review, The Blue Collar Review, Hanging Loose, The Seattle Review, Floating Bridge Review, National Fisherman, Working the Woods, Working the Sea: An Anthology of Northwest Writing, Poets of the American West, and Raising Lilly Ledbetter: Women Occupy The Workspace. Erin was a subject in the documentary film FISHER POETS. Her first collection of poems, The Glass Jar, was published by Finishing Line Press in 2016.
