Sean Prentiss focuses on craft essays concerning creative nonfiction and environmental writing.
Before he became a professor and writer, Sean worked as a trail builder with the Northwest Youth Corps in the Pacific Northwest and the Southwest Conservation Corps in the Desert Southwest. He dishwashed in five states and did about a million odd jobs ranging from demolition to construction to driving cars.
When he is not writing, traveling, canoeing, or hiking, Sean is a core faculty member at Vermont College of Fine Arts in their Writing and Publishing program and an associate professor at Norwich University.
He hand-built a small cabin in the central mountains of Colorado, and he lives on a small lake in northern Vermont with his beautiful wife, Sarah, his daughter Winter, and his wild dog, Blueberry.
