Ann Markusen writing for regional weekly newspapers in northern Minnesota. To create conversations around everything from the women’s march to immigrant issues to taxes to public schools, restorative justice, consumer protections, our environment, and beyond, I’m writing for the Cloquent Pine Journal, Floodwood Forum and Grand Rapids Herald Tribune, often with photos. I’m hoping to inspire others to write for regional and local papers. A portfolio of pre-pub drafts available here:
Upcoming research, writing and conferences: Belo Horizonte, Brazil, mid-August to mid-September to work with Clelio Campolina Diniz on assessments and write-ups of the new Inhotim contemporary art and botanical gardens.
