Bloggat om Nancy and Her Angels
I grew up on a farm in Hamilton County in Southern Illinois near McLeansboro, Illinois. In 1949 I received the B.A. and M.A. degree in English from Southern Illinois University. After graduation, like many writers, I taught at various high schools in Illinois, then colleges in Tennessee, Illinois, Kansas and Michigan. While teaching I finished two degrees in education from Kansas State in Emporia and a doctorate from University of Kansas where I did my study on Thoreau.
For three summers in the early 1950's, I was in the creative writing workshop at the State University of Iowa. While there I became good friends with the poet William Stafford and we remained friends for the rest of his life.
In the 1960's and 1970's I published poetry in small literary magazines in the U.S. and England. During this time, I found a publisher in London, England who issued two of my poetry books: LEAF SCAR (1965) and LOVE CRY (1970). Leaf Scar received a short review in Saturday Review of Literature. But early on, I discovered that in publishing poetry, one does it for love of the art and not for money.
From 1974 to 1979 I published a small national literary magazine the HURON
REVIEW, with issues twice a year. Also during the 1970's I started a small private press, WALDEN PRESS.
I retired from teaching in 1986, and I have continued to write when the creative urge lets me feel the life spark again. I write about changes in nature, the daily happenings around us, the joy and adjustment one must make in life. I still feel the excitement and joy of watching life through poetry.
