In Regard To imageIn Regard To imageIn Regard To image
Abby Seethoff is an essayist and poet from Bellevue, Washington. Some of her work interrogates gender, industrial complexes, and the American culture of atonement. Some of it illuminates her senses of curiosity, wonder, and humor. Her best pieces do both. Nowadays she resides in Brooklyn, New York, where she plays a lot of volleyball and eats a lot of cake. She writes a newsletter called Bombazine, and her work has appeared in Split Lip Magazine, The Hopper, and Mangoprism.

She is also a professional public speaker, an award-winning darner, a designer with many, many posters under her belt, and a volleyball coach with experience at the U12, U14, U17, collegiate men's club, DI & NAIA levels. Like many writers she hopes to make the world a more just place, and while all issues of oppression intersect, she's especially interested in anti-diet justice, recycling and re-use, the aesthetic reclamation of so-called "waste," and advocating for women in sports.

Abby has earned an M.F.A. in creative writing (nonfiction) from the University of Montana and a B.A. in English and Spanish from Whitman College.
Bombazine is a monthly e-newsletter by rhinestone wrangler & benign nutter Abby Seethoff.
