Manasseh Franklin

Writer Educator Adventurer


I am a writer, mountain guide, educator and adventurer. I seek big, hearty landscapes, and write about the experience of them.

My words have appeared in AFAR, Rock and Ice, Trail Runner, Western Confluence, Aspen Sojourner, Yoga International and Suburban Life River Towns magazines, in addition to several newspapers, blogs and websites. Most recently, I’ve been immersed in a long form project seeking to evoke the experience of fast-changing glaciated places.

I recently graduated from the University of Wyoming with an MFA in Creative Nonfiction Writing and Environment and Natural Resources. My focus for these degrees is to bridge the gap between science and experiential narrative.
