Kimball MacKay-Brook

For a couple of decades, Kimball MacKay-Brook made his living feeding people – sharecropping in the mountains of Western North Carolina and cooking in restaurants, daycare centers, and schools. For the last eight years, he’s taught at Cornish College of the Arts, providing, he hopes, a different sort of nutrition. His work has appeared in Fine Madness, The Journal, The Seattle Review, and Willow Springs, among others, and he has been awarded three grants from The Seattle Arts Commission, most recently receiving a Seattle Artist Award for 1997.
