Alaska Writers Renaissance

Our land, our water, our landscape, or climate -- something about Alaska drives people to create, to write. It has always been so. It's our belief at Fireside Books that Alaskan writing has never been so rich and varied as it is now. This land is creating writers, who in turn, re-create our conception of this land.

Alaskan writing has never been as diverse as it is now. We have poets, novelists, journalists, essayists to claim as our own. Some of them are familiar to you, and have been for a long time. Some of them you won't recognize. Some of them aren't even writing about Alaska -- but the quality of the voice, the creativity, the independent vision somehow speaks of Alaska.
