Bryan Fry is a husband and a father of three children. He earned his BA in literature from Walla Walla College and is currently completing his MFA in creative writing at the University of Idaho. He is a poet and essayist, and he enjoys painting with his children whom he considers the true artists in the family. He lives in Pullman, Washington.

In answer to our question of why he writes, Bryan responded:

"Writing is by far the most difficult task I’ve ever attempted, and because I’m someone who easily gets bored, I like it. I enjoy taking the small fragments of my memory and placing them orderly in an essay or—when called for something smaller, neater—a poem. Most of what I write is nonfiction because it requires honesty and accuracy and device, which is challenging. It makes me feel responsible for what I want to say."
