Caitlin Hill is a memoirist, essayist, and columnist from South Dakota. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in English and professional writing at Black Hills State University and her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing at the University of Idaho. Her writing is largely focused on the places that have held and shaped her life thus far—a small rural farming and dairy town in northeastern South Dakota, the peaks and canyons of the Black Hills, and the Palouse region of northern Idaho. Through analyzing these places, she explores topics ranging from the economics of Thorstein Veblen to the landscaping of cemeteries.
Caitlin lives, writes, and teaches in Spearfish, South Dakota.
