Isaac Anderson is the 2016-17 Milton Fellow at Image and Seattle Pacific University. He grew up in south Texas and Kansas City. His work has appeared in Image, Fourth Genre, Portland Magazine, The Atlantic, Los Angeles Review of Books, and elsewhere, and his essay “Lord God Bird” received honorable mention in Best American Essays. He holds an MFA in creative writing from the Ohio State University and has taught at Ohio State, Lenoir-Rhyne University, and Western Theological Seminary.
Isaac will be reading essays from his manuscript-in-progress titled This Is How the End Begins, which considers subjects such as American identities and rituals, fidelity, addiction, loneliness and prayer, and faith as a meaning-making instrument and as a spur to wrestling with the unknown.
This reading is free and open to the public. Q&A and dessert reception to follow.

Mischa Willett’s Phases is due to be published in March as part of the Poiema Poetry Series from Cascade Books in Eugene, OR. Dr. Willett, a member of the English Department faculty, currently teaches a variety of courses, following on a long history of teaching at various institutions here and abroad.
Says Willett, “I was attracted to the press [Cascade Books] because of their roster of poets I admire including Luci Shaw, Jill Peláez Baumgaertner, Brad Davis, Robert Siegel, Paul Mariani, and others.
“Phases pretends to be a collection of biblically-informed, formally-challenging poems based on the areas of lunar geography mapped out by Galileo, though really it’s about the various phases in a person’s life and how useful maps in general can be in tracking and categorizing them–which makes it about reflections, then, and, therefore, about the moon.”
Willett’s scholarly essays have been published in RaVoN, Victoriographies, and Romantic Circles, among other places.
This summer, Dr. Willett will be assisting Dr. Jennifer Maier on the English Department’s Creative Writing in Rome study-abroad trip.
Congratulations, Mischa, on the publication!
