For seventeen years, Jerah Chadwick has been a resident of the Aleutian Island of Unalaska, where he first came to raise goats and write, living in an abandoned WWII military compound eight miles walking from town. Since 1988 he has taught for and directed the University of Alaska extension program for the Aleutian/Pribilof island region. He holds degrees from Lake Forest College (Illinois) and the University of Alaska Fairbanks and is a recipient of an Alaska State Council on the Arts Writing Fellowship. Chadwick's poems have been published in numerous journals and anthologies in the U.S., Canada, and Ireland; and he is the author of three chapbooks, including The Dream Horse (Seal Press, Seattle) and From the Cradle of Storms (State Street, New York). In 1983, he served as guest editor for Contemporary Art and Writing of the Aleutian Islands (Penumbra, Ontario).
