Last year around this time, I submitted a piece for publication. It’s an excerpt from a much longer piece of work which follows my time in South Dakota from the initial arrest to my release from prison. Here’s a taste. Let me know if you are interested in more.
Hi. My name is Christopher Wang. Since 2005, I’ve been a commercial fisherman in Bristol Bay, Alaska.

This past weekend, I got to participate in an event in Bellingham, WA called SeaFeast. I was the guest of the Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association (BBRSDA) and was a competing chef in the Skill of the Grill. That’s a lot of words and links. To put it short, I was in a cooking … More Bellingham SeaFeast

Through the steady rhythm of my feet and the susurrating air against my ears, I’m transported away from the confines of this oval track … More The Starlings
February 22, 2016 As per usual, I find myself awake in the hollow darkness of night. But this time I’m not startled from a dream but from the zip of ripstop sliding over Cordura. Someone’s stealing the surfboards! I slip out of bed naked and drop down into a crouch on the floor of the … More Ojo de Liebre Moon
A couple of years ago, one of our deckhands brought a hand salve on board that her mother was making through a her company called Tundra Love. She had infused the salve with plants that she had collected in the tundra and which she had chosen for their antiseptic and analgesic properties. If fishing … More Tundra Love! – for working hands
