Anchorage Daily News: Singer-songwriter Annie Bartholomew Shares Stories of Gold Rush Women on 'Sisters of White Chapel'


“Alaskan Storyteller.” That’s the phrase Juneau-based Annie Bartholomew uses to describe herself on her website. Simple and to the point but way too modest.

Just one round of listening to Bartholomew’s first album makes that clear. “Sisters of White Chapel,” which tells the stories of the women who did sex work during the Klondike gold rush, was released earlier this month. The life stories woven into the album’s nine songs took Bartholomew several years to research and write.

About Me

  • An Anchorage-based New Yorker, I'm an experienced freelance writer and editor with credits in The New York Times, National Geographic, Popular Science, and many others.

    In an effort to share more about Alaska with Alaska-curious type, I write Here in Alaska, a newsletter about life, science, art, and much more. I'm also an experienced contract editor for national publications including Fortune and Entrepreneur. Yes, I've also dabbled in podcasts (and hope to do a great deal more of that in the future). My first podcast was Life (After Cancer), a conversational show that detailed life after a doctor says you have cancer. In 2022, I edited Mental Health Mosaics, produced by Out North Radio.

    Contact me to talk about upcoming writing, editing, or podcast projects at [email protected]. I look forward to hearing from you.
