Molly Murfee

Writer Molly Murfee’s favorite muse and passion is the writing of wild places and their inherent metaphor – especially as they wind around the persistent passion and fierce tenacity of mountain people living in the rhythms of their untamed home. She believes that writing can be a powerful tool to educate and entertain, placate or infuriate, speak equally to a politician or a housewife. This is an important vehicle for change in such crucial topics of our time such as the preservation of our wild places or the assurance of human rights.  

Molly holds Bachelor and Master of Arts degrees in literature, creative writing and environmental writing specializing in the incorporation of outdoor experiential education into academic programs. She served as a faculty in field programs with Colorado College, Colorado State University, the Audubon Expedition Institute at Lesley University and Colorado Outward Bound teaching creative writing, environmental literature, environmental studies, environmental education, outdoor adventure skills and Leave No Trace ethics, across the United States, Mexico, Canada and the Bahamas. She has penned over 400 published articles locally, regionally and nationally.
