1S bearpawCarolyn Red Bear

I grew up in Wisconsin where I felt like I never fit in. I graduated from Bryan Career College in Missouri, Womens Economic Ventures of California, and degrees from several courses in Creative Writing and Photography. I started a cottage school in Alaska where I wrote and taught the Literature Arts curriculum, wrote and edited the school newsletter and yearbook, and was also a volunteer and a small press while I was there. Through the years of working in Corporate Hotel Management, I started publishing my own poetry and children's picture books. After a long hiatus I am now residing in Albuquerque, NM working on my MFA Certificate at WVU while exploring more of my creative spirit.
