Education

Reed College

Beth had access to a thousand years of literature, from Beowulf to contemporary books in English from all over the world. Under the guidance of internationally known scholars and writers, Beth was exposed to a wide range of approaches. She made connections between literature and such fields as philosophy, religion, the arts, politics, science, material culture, and history.

Southern New Hampshire University

Beth cultivated her creative inspiration as well as a supportive publishing network in Southern New Hampshire University. She lived the writer's life in the global publishing city as she learned to ask questions that redefine narratives, hence becoming a daring voice of a new generation.

Technology

5,000 Projects Completed

When people think or imagine technology, they often contemplate of computers. For some, it is all about code or using the web for shopping. Beth strives to write about the idea and application of technology in everyday life. She writes technology related content ranging from driving cars to shopping in the super market.

Education

4,000 Projects Completed

Today, Beth teaches creative nonfiction courses at Brown University that carry the environmental sciences and digital technologies into the humanities classroom. Recently, her students interviewed anglers in the Narragansett Bay whose lives and livelihoods are being transformed by changes in the environment. In some ways, her creative non?ction style is like jazz—it is a rich mix of ?avors, ideas, and techniques, some of which are newly invented and others as old as writing itself.

Entertainment

3,000 Projects Completed

When talking about entertainment journalism by itself, the stakes are obviously less important on the whole than an election coverage but important nonetheless. In the current internet market, the amount of content Beth produces is just as valuable as the quality of content. Her clients get more in depth, thoughtful and well-written pieces all the time.

Book

4,000 Projects Completed

Beth rides bikes, bakes pie, and writes books. Twenty-six is her favorite number, but if she had to choose the three things she loves most about Myanmar they would be (in no particular order): monsoons, maroon monks’ robes, and all those bells. She is currently working on a book about contemporary art in Vietnam.

She is the author of Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore and Still Lifes from a Vanishing City: Essays and Photographs from Yangon, Myanmar. Beth made good use of the strange days just before this awakening to venture into the lost world of downtown Yangon, but it was not the large edifices of Empire that attracted her attention. Rather, she focused on the shop houses and private residences that line the alleyways and it is here, in these forgotten and secluded spaces, that the city’s real secrets have been kept. After all, it was not – in the bad old days of the Burmese regime – just those who were overtly political who had to succumb to the silence.
