Current Information

My name is Donna Dolezal Zelzer, and I live in Eugene, Oregon, in a small apartment near the University of Oregon. A Lane Transit District stop is conveniently located right on the corner and I ride the bus to my job at MIDWIFERY TODAY magazine, where I'm in charge of marketing, design most of our marketing/advertising materials, handle our online activities, and do various other jobs as needed.

Eugene is a great place to live, full of fascinating, diverse people, and with a wide range of events, activities, and programs. One of my favorites is the Saturday Market -- a wonderful weekly festival of food, music, arts and crafts. I also have season tickets to the Eugene Ballet performances in the Hult Center. And, of course, we have the Eugene Freenet (where these web pages reside), which makes it possible for lower income people to get online.

I'm a member of the First United Methodist Church of Eugene.

Peter DeFazio, my congressional representative, is one of a handful who voted against the Telcom Bill that threatens to erode freedom of speech in cyberspace.

I'm a free-lance writer, although I haven't had time to do much writing lately. I have had a number of things published, including several poems and a science fiction short story, "A Slow Walk into Madness," (PULPHOUSE, No. 6). My most recent publiction was a short poem, -Silicon Dreamer- in Volume 1, Issue 2 of MORPO REVIEW

I love to read (lots and varied, both fiction and non-fiction), and spend a lot of time at the Eugene Library. I also enjoy working with fiber (esp. crochet and hand-weaving) and polymer clay.

My granddaugher, Olivia, was born in Eugene on Jan 30, 1996, so most of my current crochet projects are for her. I was blessed and honored to be present at her birth, an experience that will remain one of the high points of my life.


My Past

I was born and raised in Ashland, Wisconsin in a home full of love and encouragement (and a mother, father, grandmother, and younger brother.)

After several years of living in various Wisconsin and Michigan towns, I moved to Green Bay in 1973 to attend the University there ( UWGB). I stayed in the Packer town for nearly twenty years, until I moved to Eugene in 1993.
