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 humor, wonder, and curiosity. Her best pieces do both. Previously she has studied English and Spanish at Whitman College; nowadays she resides in Missoula, Montana, where she plays a lot of volleyball and eats a lot of cake.
