Visiting writer: Carmen Gimenez Smith

The Writing Department is excited to announce that poet, memoirist, editor, and New Mexico State University professor Carmen Gimenez Smith will be visiting us March 11-14 and will offer two events.

Gimenez Smith is the author of three poetry collections, most recently Goodbye, Flicker; a memoir, Bring Down the Little Birds; and three poetry chapbooks. She is the publisher of Noemi Press and the editor-in-chief of the literary journal Puerto del Sol. She serves on the editorial committee of VIDA: Women in Literary Arts. She co-edited My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me: Forty New Fairy Tales.

Gimenez Smith will give a reading and Q&A open to the entire campus on Monday, March 11, at 7 pm, in the library Cole Room. This event is co-sponsored by WHOLA (Wilson’s Hermanos Orgullosas de las Americas or Proud Sisters and Brothers of the Americas), a multicultural student group that seeks to promote cultural dialogue by addressing the diversity of the Latino community at large.

Gimenez Smith will also lead a writing workshop presented by Diversity and Intercultural Initiatives on Tuesday, March 12, at 8:30 pm, in the Schaefer Multi-Cultural Room. This workshop is open to all students.

We are fortunate to host Carmen Gimenez Smith, and we welcome members of the Warren Wilson community to these opportunities.
