Mistee Dawn Naylor studies writing at a Seattle-area college. She has been writing poetry for seven years, and cites her major influences as Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton. Her favorite quote, "Pain engraves a deeper memory," is by Anne Sexton. Mistee, who reads, "just about anything," is also inspired by art and music, and has discovered that while she has matured as a poet, she's still searching for her life's direction. "My life...seems to change from moment to moment. Poetry seems to be my genre in life," she wrote in a recent e-mail. She was born in Fairbanks, Alaska. "Not in an igloo," she jokes. "I've known about cars since birth...I do like cold weather, and yes, it's the most beautiful place on this...Earth."
