Anders Carlson-Wee is an MFA student in poetry. He was a professional rollerblader before he studied wilderness survival and started hopping freight trains to see the country. He has traveled through the forests of the South, the cornfields of the Midwest, the prairies of the West, and the blue-hued mountains of Alaska, eating food out of dumpsters and trashcans to avoid having to stop and get a job. Anders is the winner of a 2012 Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Prize, and was recently nominated for a Pushcart Prize. His work has appeared in Ninth Letter, New Delta Review, Bluestem Quarterly, The Pinch, and Best New Poets.
