extended hiatus

Due to expanded commitments to my small press, I've been forced to cut down on some other projects. I would be delighted if someone else came forward to carry on this blog. Meanwhile, I hope some of the links and contacts herein are of some use.



Gary Fincke: Lock Haven: 4/5/06

from the Lock Haven University web calendar:

Poet and prose writer Gary Fincke will be reading as part of LHU's Pennsylvania Author's Reading Series. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Gary Fincke is director of the Writers Institute and a professor of English and creative writing at Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania.

From his web site: A 2003 winner of the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction (Sorry I Worried You), Gary Fincke has published sixteen books of poetry and short fiction, most recently Standing Around the Heart, a collection which “shows Gary Fincke at his inimitable best.” His nonfiction account of his son's life as a rock guitarist, Amp'd: A Father’s Backstage Pass, was published by Michigan State in 2004. In 2002, Fincke completed Writing Letters For the Blind, which won the 2003 Ohio State University Press/The Journal poetry prize, and The Stone Child, a collection of short stories that earned Fincke praise as “one of literary America’s best-kept secrets.”
