Welcome to Braided Streams, by Ten Poets from Alaska. You may use the plugin above to view the magazine online, or purchase a high-quality printed issue by clicking here.
We found each other through classes and coffee shops, performances and readings, and sometimes just serendipity. We call ourselves “Ten Poets” and have been meeting for four years to support and critique each other’s work. We are variously an engineer, a grant writer, two lawyers, a retired librarian, a national parks ranger, a kindergarten teacher, a fish biologist, and a social worker. We have no sponsor and no leader. What we have in common are a love for the incredible sweep and majesty of our chosen home, Alaska, and a desire to express ourselves through a highly condensed, figurative form of speech known as poetry. At our once-a-week meetings during all but the summer months, we share red wine, cookies, fruit, and our passion for the art of the the written and spoken word. We hope you enjoy what we have to offer.
