Creative Writing Club:
I am the Faculty Advisor to the Creative Writing Student Club. We meet weekly at Mugby Junction on Huff Street to workshop student's original works of poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction, as well as discuss writing techniques and methods, professional (already published) work, films, art, publishing, and graduate school. If you are interested in joining, please contact the club:

The CWC also hosts several Open Mic Nights in local establishments throughout the year. The club also has a group page on Facebook.

I am the founding director and editor of Zumbro River Press, which is a fine literary letterpress publisher that publishes limited edition books of poetry. I began publishing books under this imprint in the Spring of 2000 in La Crosse, WI.
