Howe is the author of “Cloudshade: Poems of the High Plains” and “Voices at Twilight: A Poet’s Guide to Wyoming Ghost Towns.” She has taught English and creative writing workshops for the last decade at the University of Wyoming and Laramie County Community College.

She holds a bachelor’s in English and Spanish, a master’s in English, a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from UW and is a doctoral candidate in literacy studies at UW, with a focus on critical thinking skills and creativity for struggling writers.

She teaches workshops for the Wyoming Latina project and the Wyoming Writing Project, and has been a guest poet on Wyoming Public Radio. She is editor in chief of “Clerestory: Poems of the Mountain West,” an online literary magazine dedicated to showcasing the work of Wyoming writers.

“Water in Wyoming” is presented by the Wyoming Humanities Council as part of its ThinkWY Road Scholars Tours program.
