Author's Bio

Andrei Guruianu is a Romanian-born writer and professor of writing. His works often explore such topics as memory and forgetting, the role of art and of the artist, and the ability of place to shape personal and collective histories. His most recent project is Dead Reckoning: Transatlantic Passages From Europe to America (SUNY Press), a co-authored dialogic and ekphrastic collection of essays and prose poems. Previously he has worked as editor of the international literary journal The Broome Review and the Stephen Dunn Prize in Poetry, and from 2009-2010 was selected as the first Broome Country Poet Laureate. In 2009 he also edited an anthology of Eastern-European writing titled Twenty Years After the Fall, and that same year served as guest editor of the Yellow Medicine Review. His poetry has been featured by former U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser in the column American Life in Poetry. Guruianu currently teaches in the expository writing program at New York University.
