Get-to-Know-the-Readers: Mikka

Like all the contributors, we told Mikka Jacobsen we wanted concise bios. We said 30 words, or so (which is a fair bit shorter than the usual 50 words). Mikka read that email and said ‘30 words? That’s still too many!’ And sent us a 20 word bio instead. She is a Calgary-based writer, editor, and teacher while pursuing her PhD at the University of Calgary. Recently, her work received subTerrain’s 2017 Lush Triumphant Award for creative nonfiction. (If you count the words in that bio you will find more than 20, that’s because we added a few tidbits–if you get the issue at our launch on Sunday you can compare her bio to this one!)
