Katherine Lanpher is an award-winning freelance journalist based in Harlem. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times,  MORE magazine, the Paris Review Online and Slate. Her 2006 memoir “Leap Days’’ (Grand Central 2006) received four stars from People. Her voice is familiar to New Yorkers as a substitute host for WNYC and to Minnesotans as the former host of MPR’s “Midmorning.’’ From 2013 to 2016, she was the Senior Online Features Editor for Al Jazeera America in New York, where she managed a staff of three editors, two staff writers and scores of freelance writers around the globe. Her career includes stints as a podcast and public radio host, newspaper columnist, oped instructor, public moderator and travel writer. She was the co-host of Al Franken’s radio show when he launched Air America. This will be her third time teaching at the Madeline Island School of the Arts and she looks forward to co-teaching with Laurie Lindeen.

Laurie Lindeen is the author of the critically acclaimed memoir PETAL PUSHER that recounts the years she spent fronting the all-women indie rock band Zuzu’s Petals from 1985-1995. Her essays have appeared in anthologies, the Huffington Post, and the New York Times as well as in literary publications. She teaches writing and literature at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota and at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis. She is currently working on a TV series, a young adult novel, and a new memoir.
