Jane Fritz has lived in Sandpoint, Idaho for 40 years and is a published writer, poet, independent radio producer and author of Legendary Lake Pend Oreille (Keokee Books, 2018, 2010). She is also the media director of The Idaho Mythweaver, a 30-year-old nonprofit organization that has worked with the Plateau tribes of the region. For many years, she was a community producer of feature stories and documentaries for KPBX as well as for national programs like Living on Earth (now on PRX) and National Native News. Her most recent writing and poetry typically deal with threats to the natural world, especially endangered wildlife. She’s currently contemplating writing a memoir of her work with Native peoples.
