  • Miami University MFA 30 July, 2017
    I have joined the low-residency MFA program at Miami University, where Hoa Nguyen and Laura Van Prooyen are the poetry mentors.  These poets join the experimental-minded poetry faculty in Miami’s residential MFA program, Keith Tuma, Cathy Wagner, and cris cheek for an intimate poetics program well-versed in the history of experimental poetry and performance.

Our library’s major programming efforts are toward The Indian Springs Visiting Writers Series (FB), which I started with my colleague Douglas Ray shortly after starting here. Douglas and I are both poets and our intention was to raise awareness of contemporary poetry by combining curricular poetry (poetry that Douglas, an English teacher, assigns in his classes) with an extracurricular poetry reading series (although we have also had many non-poets).  The series and its ties to Douglas’s curriculum have increased circulation of 811.54 and 811.6 dramatically. 

Our most recent Visiting Writer was Nona Willis Aronowitz, whose book Girldrive we read in my Feminist Literature class. A recording of her reading and my students’ Q&A with her can be found at the ISS Visiting Writers Series Soundcloud. She wrote about her experience with us for The Nation.
