Managing Editor: Cheyenne L. Black

CL Black, though born in Yuma, has lived in ten states and visited all but two (Alaska and Hawaii). She comes to Hayden's Ferry via (Cascadia) NW Washington state, which she still calls "home." She received her BA in creative writing and interdisciplinary studies from Western Washington University. Her interdisciplinary concentration, Editing and Publishing Innovation, focusedon those industries, teaching, and the marginalized voice in media and the arts. Currently she is attempting daily progress on a poetry collection which focuses on the experiences of women and children in cowboy culture. Black writes across the genres, teaches writing, and loves/makes arty/nerdy stuff like encaustics, cob houses, photographs, and book arts. The fastest way to get her to attend an event is to tell her there will be a campfire.
