Erica Watson is a writer and editor based on the boundary of Denali National Park, Alaska, on Dene lands.

This site is under construction. Thank you for visiting.

Overlooking the Yanert Valley, Alaska Range

Erica’s writing explores ideas of community, self, political action, and climate change at the intersection of the human and nonhuman worlds, and draws from experience living in lifelong intimacy with designated public lands. She works primarily in personal essay form, and is deeply informed by both poetry and literary journalism.

She aims to write in a space that is both timely and documentarian, to access universal themes through the hyper-local and the microcosmic.
