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.



Lynn Emanuel: Johnstown: 3/19/09

Thursday, March 19, 7:30 PM: Poet Lynn Emanuel will read in the J. Irving Whalley Memorial Chapel on the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown campus.

Emanuel is the author of Hotel Fiesta, The Dig, Then Suddenly— and the forthcoming book of poetry Mob and Torch. Her work has been featured in the Pushcart Prize Anthology, Best American Poetry, and The Oxford Book of American Poetry. Also a distinguished teacher and editor, she has been the recipient of numerous awards for her poetry, including two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships and a National Poetry Series Award.

Emanuel’s appearance is part of a poetry series begun in 2004 and made possible by a generous endowment from UPJ alumna Esther Goldhaber Jacovitz. This event, coordinated by UPJ’s major in Creative and Professional Writing, is free of charge and open to the public. A book signing will follow.
