Cabin John, MD
I’ve Taught poetry at Georgetown Univ. for 12 years. I most recently I taught at Univ. of Texas. A few years ago I was Fulbright Professor of Poetry & American Culture in the Balkans. For over 34 years I’ve been editor/publisher of Visions-International. Have five books of poetry & over 500 poems published in: America, Seattle Rev., Confrontation, The Hollins Critic, Soundings East, Poet Lore, & anthologies: 2003 Struga Festival anthology, Blood to Remember, etc.. I also have had several Fellowships over the past few years including at the Univ. in Leuven, Belgium.
Brief excerpt: "I worked as a waiter in a restaurant called the Gallery, but I kept screwing up the checks, under-charging, over-charging. Sometimes I brought out the wrong orders, and once I tried to convince a guy that what I'd brought him, pasta, was better for him than the veal he'd ordered. I told him quit being so rigid, open up to the pasta, but that didn't go over. The owner, Mr. Katz, was nice about firing me. He said I should think about completing my education or maybe work in an office somewhere. He shook my hand and said I had a bright future." I'm lucky enough to be married to a wonderful doctor which allows me to be a house husband for our children (7 and 6), and which gives me time to write. Currently I'm finishing a draft of a novel and working on short stories.
