Don Rearden

Don Rearden grew up on the tundra of Southwestern Alaska. His experiences with the Yup'ik Eskimo culture shaped both his writing and to a larger extent his worldview. While he is a produced screenwriter and published poet, his heart often draws his writing back to characters and stories that originate on the tundra. In his fiction he hopes to shed light on the struggles of everyday life in rural Alaska, a place outsiders often view as a mysterious land. 

Rearden lives in the mountain community of Bear Valley, Alaska, and is an Associate Professor of Developmental Studies at the University of Alaska, Anchorage, where he teaches young writers how to develop their creative voices.
