Public speaking experience
I have performed readings and public
speaking with Q & A at colleges, universities, high schools,
libraries, arts centers, literary festivals, conferences, panels,
bookstores, coffee shops and bars, on radio, and cable television.
I am frequently invited to perfom in
a dual role at colleges and universities (particularly for writing
programs) as both poet and publisher. Typically, I perform a reading from my book, Anxious Music, and give a talk or visit a class to speak on a variety of topics:
- Getting published
- Careers for writers
- How I came to be a publisher
- How being a poetry editor affects my poetry writing
- Manuscript ordering
- Teaching demonstrations of the "Ossmann Method" workshop
I also sometimes perform brief one-on-one meetings with MFA students to advise them about getting published.
