Author's Bio

My poems have been published in such journals as Prairie Schooner, The Cortland Review, and Sycamore Review, and featured on Poetry Daily and The Writers Almanac

I retired in 2016 from teaching writing and literature at Ripon College, where I also hosted their Visiting Writers Series for twenty-eight years. I have served on The Poets’ Prize Committee and the Wisconsin Poet Laureate Commission and was a Resident Poet as well as faculty member at The Frost Place in Franconia, New Hampshire. Currently I am a contributing editor for Verse-Virtual, where I also contribute a monthly column, “Poetic License,” on poetry and poets.
