(Feb. 16, 2011)--The UTSA Department of English Creative Writing program will present poet and author Kevin Clark as the featured speaker in the Spring 2011 Creative Writing Reading Series at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 25 in the Business Building University Room (2.06.04) on the UTSA Main Campus.
Free and open to the public, Clark will read from his books "Self-Portrait With Expletives," which won the 2009 Pleiades Press contest and "In the Evening of No Warning," which earned a grant from the Academy of American Poets.
His poetry has appeared in journals such as the Georgia, Iowa and Antioch reviews, Crazyhorse, Ploughshares, Gulf Coast, The New York Quarterly and The Denver Quarterly.
Clark's textbook, "The Mind's Eye: A Guide to Writing Poetry," features his essays that also were published in books about Ruth Stone, Charles Wright and Sandra McPherson. He received the Angoff Award for best contribution to The Literary Review and had one of his poems anthologized in "The Notre Dame Review: The First Ten Years."
Clark teaches poetry writing and modern and contemporary American literature at California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo. During the summers, he also teaches at The Rainier Writing Workshop, a low-residency M.F.A. program in Tacoma, Calif.
He received his master's degree in creative writing and his doctoral degree in literature from the University of California, Davis.
The reading is sponsored in conjunction with The Macondo Foundation, which works with dedicated and compassionate writers who view their work and talents as part of a larger task of community building and nonviolent social change.
