Artist Portrait

Partial to pictures and words, Angela Allen works as an arts journalist, and in 2005, won a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship with Columbia University School of Journalism to study with world-class musicians and editors. She teaches photography and creative writing, and in 2009 served as Fishtrap’s Eastern Oregon Writer-in-Residence. Her journalism and photography are published in newspapers, magazines, and online sites, and her poetry appears in scattered places, including the December 2014 issue of Watershed Review and in a chapbook collection titled Saturday Afternoons (Clothesline Press, 2009), for which she shot the cover art. She has had several photos shows in Kentucky, her birth state, and in her home state, Oregon. In 1984, she earned an M.A. in journalism from University of Oregon, and 30 years later received her M.F.A. in Creative Writing/Poetry from Pacific Lutheran University. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her scientist husband and often unwieldy garden.
