What is an Indigo Prairie?
It’s nothing really mysterious. Like the Indigo Girls, I always loved the sound of the word “indigo,” not to mention it is one of the most gorgeous colors out there. As for the “prairie…” Truth be told, smack in the middle of the Great Plains in Nebraska. Not much here but football, corn, cows and LOTS of grassland!
Who is Indigo Prairie?
Again, there is no great mystery. Indigo Prairie is Annie Kontor, a Nebraska native who writes, edits and translates.
I got my first taste of transforming words when I translated and edited for a software company in France in 2001, and I have never looked back. I have enjoyed working with private companies nonprofits and individual clients. From proofreading short articles to translating curriculum, I loved every project that has been sent my way.
As a former French and Spanish teacher, I have written for nonprofits, academic journals and websites. I have been proofreader and editor to a leading sports coaching journal since the early 2000s in addition to several nonprofit publications.
I have my BA from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in French and European Studies with a minor in Spanish. I studied abroad at the Centre de Linguistique-Appliquée in Besançon, France.
After teaching in Héricourt, France for a year as a Fulbright runner-up, I received my MA in French Literature from the University of Kansas.
