Hannah Hindley is a Master of Fine Arts candidate in creative nonfiction at the University of Arizona’s creative writing program. Her work explores relationships between diverse people and changing landscapes. She is interested in the future of ice, the future of people who live alongside it, and how post-boom frontier towns cope with climate change in Alaska’s glacier country. As a Carson Scholar, Hannah hopes to research adaptation and resilience in human and biotic communities in Wrangell St. Elias National Park and to communicate the current field science unfolding across the five thousand square miles of glaciers within it. She looks forward to honing her science communication skills not just as a writer but as a multimedia chronicler of the built and natural environments—and the changes they face—in our nation’s largest national park.
