Dasha Kelly

The 2012 - 2013 Pfister Narrator

“In this role Dasha Kelly will spend time in the hotel’s lobby, speaking with visitors and guests and sharing their stories on the Pfister blog. As narrator, Dasha will be posting blog entries at least twice a week over a six-month period.”

Kelly is founder and director of Still Waters Collective, a Milwaukee-based outreach initiative utilizing the transformative power of the written and spoken word. She has performed and delivered workshops to writers, youth, educators, co-eds, executives, inmates and artists throughout the U.S. She is also an HBO Def Poetry alum. As a poet and novelist, Kelly’s writings have appeared in anthologies, textbooks, magazines and online. Her latest collection of work, Hershey Eats Peanuts is available through Penmanship Books. She is currently working on her second novel and a new collection of essays.

Kelly was chosen to serve as narrator based on her writing style, experience and personality, from a significant pool of qualified applicants by a review panel consisting of local writers and editors, and representatives from the hotel.

“Although we’re sad to see Ed [the 2011-2012 narrator] leave, we’re thrilled to add Dasha to our team,” said Joe Kurth, general manager of The Pfister Hotel. “I’m confident our guests will appreciate her enthusiasm, as her extensive writing experience promise creative, captivating blog entries.”

Dasha will be sharing the stories of hotel guests and employees on The Pfister Hotel Blog twice a week for the next six months.
