Kevin Wayne Zerbe
Kevin Wayne Zerbe is a writer, photographer, and environmental scientist. His written work, whether it be in long- or short-form narratives, and his photography are rooted in a discussion around natural landscapes: our relationships with them and their influence on our lives. Each of his projects seeks to better understand our place in the natural world and what it means to be connected to the land. His work as an environmental scientist is focused on understanding the risks of natural hazards and climate change, and the assessment of our vulnerability to potential natural disasters.
After childhoods spent at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and five moves across the United States, he and his wife have had the fortune of seeing all this country has to offer: its largest metropolises and its most remote wildernesses. Today they have settled quietly in a grove of Douglas fir, catching glimpses of Mount Rainier above the trees.
His debut novel, A Drive Over Land, received an Honorable Mention for the 2020 Landmark Prize in Fiction (Homebound Publications). His debut chapbook, Hunger That Way, was short listed for publication by Tiny Seed Press. He is still seeking publication for both pieces.
