Poet Amy Groshek was born in Eau Claire, Wisconsin in 1977. According to the Eau Claire Law, written in 1937, the price paid to a United States farmer for milk increases with the farm’s distance from Eau Claire. Amy holds an MFA from the University of Alaska Anchorage. She teaches writing and computer applications at Alaska Pacific University. Her poems have appeared in Bloom, Alaska Quarterly Review, and Ice-Floe. The Eau Claire Law, due to the lobbying efforts of New England and California corporate dairies, is still in effect.

Artist Amy Meissner is an artist and writer who makes her living illustrating children’s books. She lives in Anchorage, Alaska.
