Our Current Fellows
Isaac Anderson grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas, and in Kansas City. His work has appeared or is forthcoming in Fourth Genre, Image, Portland Magazine, Los Angeles Review of Books, Literature and Belief, and elsewhere, and his piece “Lord God Bird” (Image issue 72) received honorable mention in Best American Essays. He holds an MFA in creative writing from the Ohio State University, has taught at Ohio State, Lenoir-Rhyne University, and Western Theological Seminary, and has been a writer-in-residence at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts.
As a Milton Fellow, Anderson will be working on a collection of essays titled This Is How the End Begins, a manuscript that examines moments of personal or historic consequence as threshold moments of birth and death, opening and closure. His essays consider subjects such as American identities and rituals, fidelity, addiction, loneliness and prayer, faith and science, cultivating empathy, religious extremism, and contingency as a native part of human being. He is also at work on a memoir titled Seek What You Vow.
Elisabeth Ivey attends Messiah College, where she studies English and Sociology & Anthropology. Both fields of study reflect her desire to learn more about the diversity of humanity and God’s thread of redemption that runs through it. While at Messiah, Elisabeth has been a recipient of the Lloyd and Lois Martin’s Multicultural Scholarship, which influenced her reflection on race published in the school newspaper, The Swinging Bridge. During the summer of 2016, she wrote for The Odyssey, an online publication that promotes the voices of young writers. This spring, Elisabeth is studying abroad in Thailand, studying social issues as well as the culture and history of the region. She looks forward to learning from the team at Image and seeing new ways to portray life and honor God within the scope of writing.
