Writing the Distance: Sharry Miller

The Covid 19 pandemic is isolating Alaskan writers. We can no longer attend workshops or public readings. The coffee bars where we met with other writers are closed. To bridge these physical gaps, 49 Writers is providing this on-line forum for Alaskans writing the distance. Today, Sharry Miller provides a poem and photograph.

Leaf buds appear…hope


Sharry Miller writes in Valdez, where she also makes fused glass art and supports her creative addictions with environmental consulting. She’s currently social distancing on her fishing boat while working on an oil spill response in Port Valdez.
