Featured Writers

Tim Hunt’s six collections include Western Where (2024) and Voice to Voice in the Dark (2022), both Broadstone Books, and Ticket Stubs & Liner Notes, winner of the 2018 Main Street Rag Poetry Book Award. Born in Calistoga and raised primarily in Sebastopol, two small towns north of San Francisco that were, in the 1950s and 1960s, still agricultural, working-class communities, he identified strongly as a boy with the Lake County region of his father’s family, an area of the Sierra Nevada foothills where quicksilver mining had once been profitable. Here one of his aunts taught him “I Can Tell You Are a Logger ’Cause You Stir Your Coffee with Your Thumb,” while a rockabilly cousin offered “Be-Bop-a-Lula.” He has also published academic studies of the California poet Robinson Jeffers and the Beat novelist Jack Kerouac. Educated at Cornell University, he taught American literature at several schools, including Washington State University and Deep Springs College, before concluding his career at Illinois State University, where he was University Professor of English. He and his wife Susan, a retired respiratory therapist, have two children: John, a visual artist, and Jessica, a composer.

Zack Rogow is the author, editor, or translator of more than twenty books or plays. He will be reading from his memoir, Hugging My Father’s Ghost, released by Spuyten Duyvil Publishing in April 2024. The book is Zack’s attempt to solve the mystery of the father he never really knew—his dad was a widely published writer and glamorous man-about-town in 1950s Manhattan. Zack Rogow’s ninth book of poems, Irreverent Litanies, was published by Regal House. He is also writing a series of plays about authors. The most recent of these, Colette Uncensored, had its first staged reading at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, and ran in London, Indonesia, Catalonia, San Francisco, and Portland. His blog, Advice for Writers, features more than 275 posts on topics of interest to writers. His website is: zackrogow.com
