Archive for June, 2018

I published a heap of new work in the early months of 2018! Some highlights:

For Outside, I traveled to Nunavut to complete a two-week boot camp in polar travel and survival. I’ve been lucky enough to do a lot of memorable trips for work, but this one was something special. I wrote about learning the secret to success on the ice.

Though it was published in 2018, that story was based on a trip I did in March 2017. The confidence I got from my time in Nunavut allowed me to enter the 100-mile Yukon Arctic Ultra here at home this past winter, and I wrote about my experience in the race for the Globe and Mail: I Would Walk 100 Miles. I also wrote a short item for Outside about the catastrophic injuries sustained by one racer during this year’s event.

Moving away from my cold-and-snow beat, I wrote a feature for WIRED’s Life Issue about the evolving science of saving extreme preemies: Saving Baby Boy Green. I really poured everything I had into that one, and I hope you’ll check it out!

For Longreads, I followed up on the Freelancers’ Roundtable that I put together a couple years ago. This time, I moderated a panel of smart folks talking about writing on both sides of the fiction-nonfiction divide.

For Seattle Met, I wrote about the mysterious disappearance of a crab boat in the Bering Sea, and the Coast Guard investigation that followed: The Boat at the Bottom of the Sea.

And most recently, Hakai published my dispatch from the westernmost village in Alaska, where a newly formed polar bear patrol aims to protect humans from bears – and bears from humans.
