NEW VOICES:

Rick Marting, Rozlyn Steele, Matthew Starr, and Kat Seidemann

Rick Marting was raised in southern Ohio and moved to Seattle with his wife and children in 1979.  He holds a B.A. from Miami University and a M.Ed. from the University of Washington.  After many years in teaching, he has returned to his writing and begun classes at NSCC.  His recent rediscovery of the work of Gerard Manley Hopkins helped prompt him to try his “writing hand” again. Creative Writing instructor: Pesha J. Gertler.

Rozlyn Steele is currently a student at North Seattle, focusing her studies on American Sign Language.  She recently participated in NSCC Vagina Monologues and is interested in pursuing theater as well as poetry for artistic expression.  Rozlyn reads her poetry at open mikes and poetry slams, she read at last years New Voices event and was a Slam winner in Chattanooga, Tennessee in 2003.  Rozlyn is a tried and true poetry lover, her favorites coming from scribblings on cocktail napkins and the backs of used envelopes.  Rozlyn is planning on moving to southern California this fall because the thought of enduring one more rainy season will result in her “head-butting a knife. “Creative Writing instructor: Deborah Green.

Matthew Starr enjoys the sly writing of Kurt Vonnegut and Terry Pratchett, and tries to plumb the same absurdities of both human experience and language. He trained as a graphic artist, and tends to approach his writing from a visual perspective. He has been published in the Licton Springs Review. Creative Writing instructor: Tracy Heinlein.

Kat Seidemann is a poet with more vice than versa: as senior in high school my mother declared, “Katherine, you should be a journalist”, but I was rebellious. I wrote without structure or purpose for years. Last year I returned to school after a long hiatus and rediscovered what my mom knew years ago- writing is my passion and the paste that holds me together. I remain an old soul shored up by immaturity. Creative Writing Instructor: Molly Tenenbaum.
