Alaska writer Amy Hartley is a zombie-fearing feminist who writes when she’s not chasing two small children, feeding the family rabbit, or working her 8-to-5. She hosts a radio show dedicated to jazz music on her local public broadcasting station and enjoys classic horror films, white wine and auctions. A collector of books and art, Amy is inspired by others’ creative pursuits as well as a good walk through the woods or an aurora sighting. After working as a print and television journalist, she returned to Fairbanks–her hometown–to pursue graduate studies in poetry. Amy graduated with her MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2010. Her poetry has appeared in Ice Box, Earth’s Daughters and the book There’s This Place I Know. Work is also forthcoming in Fire Tetrahedron.

One thought on “Aging by Amy Hartley

  1. Interesting use of a banana as a metaphor for the ageing process. My children are horrified when they discover any blemish on one, which does not forebode well for us as their middle-aged parents!
