Hi there. You’re probably interested in The New Territory magazine, right? It’s the magazine I founded to support writers and document the lower Midwest’s land, people, problems and its possibilities. For updates, sign up for the newsletter.

If you’re actually here about me, here goes: I grew up on a small Ozark farm with plenty of nature and not a lot of people. My writing is mostly about my love and curiosity for both.

These days, I stay busy with the NT. I make money doing things for clients. And sometimes teaching. And sometimes writing.

Let’s talk: Tina.Casagrand[at] or follow me on Twitter.
