Center for Creative Writing: Poet Rick Campbell

Frostburg State University to Present Poet Rick Campbell

The Frostburg State University Center for Creative Writing will begin its fall 2013 Reading Season with poet Rick Campbell, who will read his poetry on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 7:30 p.m. in the Lyric Theatre, 20 E. Main St. in Frostburg. The event is free and open to the public.

Campbell’s narrative poetry presents readers with a different view of the world and the human condition with poignant imagery and a variety of topics that range from baseball to mental illness. He has published four books of poetry, “Dixmont,” “The Traveler’s Companion,” “Setting the World in Order” and “A Day’s Work.” He has won a Pushcart Prize, an NEA Fellowship in Poetry and two poetry fellowships from the Florida Arts Council. He has published poems and essays in many journals, including “The Georgia Review,” “The Florida Review,” “Prairie Schooner” and others. Campbell is the director of Anhinga Press, an independent poetry publisher, and teaches English at Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, Fla.

“It’s great to have a writer like Campbell come out to FSU – he's a terrific poet,” says Center for Creative Writing director Gerry LaFemina. “More importantly, he’s a great teacher and a great friend to writers. Our students and local writers will get a lot out of this event.”
