It occurs to me (Willie) that we haven’t properly introduced ourselves. “Ourselves” meaning the physical, corporeal bodies, made of vessel and vesicles, the living (inasmuch as we have lives) people who are organizing APRIL. Without further ado, our small, professional-looking*, third-person biographies.
Tara Atkinson, Managing Director
Tara Atkinson has worked as an editor, an arts journalist, a publishing assistant, a home health aid, an organic farmer, a standardized test quality controller, and a line cook. She is currently pursuing her MFA at the University of Washington where she teaches composition.
Willie Fitzgerald, Creative Director
Willie Fitzgerald grew up in Cabin John, MD, went to school in Wisconsin and now lives in Seattle. He writes fiction.
Kellen Braddock, Finance and Development Coordinator
Kellen Braddock, currently pursuing an MFA in Arts Leadership, no longer has an appetite for vegetables. Lately she marries produce in a blender and shoots the mess, like a pill, before coffee. She finds pleasure in knowing that Netflix really gets her, steadfast to her “Controversial,” “Strong Women” taste preferences. First ground-under-foot experience happened in NYC.
Stay tuned—updates on our Kickstarter are coming shortly.
