Who is Paul Bogard?

January 15, 2009

You may have missed it, the November post about a visiting writer, Paul Bogard. You may have even shrugged and said, hmmm, name sounds familiar….  in fact, Paul Bogard graduated from UNM with an MA in Creative Writing back in ’03.  Since then, he’s done well:

Paul Bogard is the editor of Let There Be Night: Testimony on Behalf of the Dark (U of Nevada P, 2008). 

His creative nonfiction has appeared in such places as Creative Nonfiction, River Teeth, and The Gettysburg Review, and he has written more than fifty articles for publications such as Outside, Audubon, Backpacker, and the Albuquerque Journal. 

Paul graduated from Carleton College and eventually made his way to Albuquerque, where he lived for eight years, and in 2003 earned his MA in Creative Writing at UNM. 

In 2007, he earned his PhD in Literature and Environment at the University of Nevada, Reno, and is currently a visiting assistant professor at Northland College on the shores of Lake Superior in Ashland, Wisconsin.

So don’t miss Paul Bogard’s reading on February 18, and any graduate students interested in attending the dinner, contact Julie S.
