George Mason University, MFA
Alyssa likes to call herself a poet-skier, or skier-poet... or maybe she's just a person who loves being outdoors and writing poems as much as possible. She should probably start calling herself a teacher too, since she has just as much experience teaching as she does poet-ing. After graduating from George Mason University with her MFA in Poetry, she moved out to Denver to be closer to the mountains. When she's not making lessons for her Polyphony classes, she's probably out rock climbing or backcountry skiing with her partner, Lars. And when she's had enough of that, she's probably curled up with a book at home while her adventure doggo, Seneca, licks her toes.
