About the Artist

Lee Gulyas (Bellingham) writes poetry and nonfiction, which has appeared in anthologies and journals such as Full Grown People, Prime Number, Event, Barn Owl Review, Malahat Review, and The Common. A graduate of The University of British Columbia’s MFA program in Creative Writing, her interests include marine life, literary journalism, poetics, travel writing, maps, art and social justice, sustainable development, and Canadian literature. She teaches at Western Washington University.

Lee received a 2014 GAP for translation, technology services and equipment to combine new narrative nonfiction in a series of interactive maps in Rwanda. Digital technology will layer sensory data (songs, photos, video, etc.) with short essays to create a larger, more interactive experience than either an essay or a map could represent alone.
