Careers and the Value of an English Major
Born upstairs in her parents' gas station on the Oregon Coast, Maya lived a nomadic childhood in the Pacific Northwest. She attended Western Washington University in the late 1990s, where she earned a B.A. in English Education. After teaching high school and coaching cross country and track on the Olympic Peninsula, Maya moved to Spokane for graduate school. She worked as an editor for Eastern Washington University Press as well as for Willow Springs Magazine before earning a MFA in creative writing in 2007 and teaching for the Community Colleges of Spokane and then Gonzaga University, before coming to Central Washington University. Maya's poetry collections are Rust Fish and Yesterday, the Bees; individual essays and poems appear widely. Maya's work has won various awards, including a residency in the H.J. Andrews Forest and a Promise Award from the Sustainable Arts Foundation. Maya serves as fiction editor for Crab Creek Review and as a teacher to many fine students at CWU.
There will also be a craft talk by Maya at noon in Black Hall, Rm 151.
