Piper Lane, Prose Editor
Piper Lane was born and raised in a small Alaskan town and bred to chase fish home each summer. She still commercial fishes in the last wild fishery on earth, Bristol Bay. She currently resides in Seattle as an MFA candidate at the University of Washington and curates two reading series, Black Jaw and Castalia. She has an affinity for collecting bones from tide lines and the wild sides of country roads, and writes back against the literary archetypes of lone men conquering wild spaces, the white hegemonic heroes of the Last Frontier. Her work has appeared in Litro, The Missing Slate and BlazeVox and she was named a finalist for both the Bellingham Review’s Tobias Wolff award for fiction and Nimrod International literary award.
