Molly Snyder has been announced as the 6th Pfister Narrator. Molly will as narrator from May 2013 through November 2013. In this role, she will spend time in the hotel’s lobby and public spaces, speaking with visitors and guests and sharing their stories on The Pfister’s award-winning blog (blog.thepfisterhotel.com).
“I am honored to be the Pfister Narrator,” said Snyder. “The position combines the things that matter to me the most: writing, Milwaukee and human connection.”
Snyder has lived in Milwaukee her entire life. She started keeping a diary when she was four and published her first poem at age 10 called “The Unicorn” in the now-defunct Shorewood Herald. Today, she writes less about mythical creatures and more about Milwaukee people and places. She is a senior writer at OnMilwaukee.com, where she has worked for the last 12 years. Telling people’s stories is her passion.
Snyder’s articles, essays and creative writings have appeared in many publications, including The Writer, The Sun and USA Today. She is also a radio personality who has regularly contributed to WISN, 102.1FM and WMYX.
Snyder was chosen to serve as narrator based on her writing style, professional experience and personality. She was selected from a pool of qualified applicants by a review panel consisting of local writers, editors and representatives from the hotel. She will be replacing Jenna Kashou, who has been blogging for the hotel since November. Snyder will begin her residency as narrator the week of April 29, 2013. During her time at the hotel, she will collaborate on a book project with Pfister Artist-in-Residence Stephanie Barenz.
“Molly knows Milwaukee and has a reputation as a brilliant storyteller,” said Cassy Scrima, marketing director for Marcus Hotels & Resorts. “We look forward to her contributions to the blog and know she’ll do a wonderful job of representing The Pfister while sharing the stories of our guests.”
