Author's Bio

I have worked since the early 1970s as both poet and publisher. I am the former Director of FutureCycle Press and now edit Kentucky Review, a division of the press. I teach workshops and give readings mostly in the Southeast but will travel further if needed. My workshops usually focus on publishing in the electronic age.
