Nell Smith

Welcome! Originally from Maine, I am a writer and field biologist living in the Intermountain West. Much of my work seeks to cultivate a more expansive and reciprocal conception of the natural world and humans’ place within ecological systems. I am particularly interested in transdisciplinary projects that integrate the arts and sciences.

I hold an M.F.A. in Creative Writing and Environment & Natural Resources from the University of Wyoming and a B.A. in Arts & Letters and Environmental Studies from Prescott College. My poetry and prose have appeared or are forthcoming in: Hobart, Minding Nature, Thin Air Magazine, Essay Daily, Entropy, and other publications.
