The Tin House Writer-in-Residence: Joanna Klink
Spring delivers many a splendid thing (flowers, baseball, Don Draper), but for those us working on Thurman street, the change in season brings with it a new neighbor.
Collaborating with our good friends at Portland State University’s graduate program in Creative Writing, we are pleased to welcome Joanna Klink as the 2013 Tin House Writer-in-Residence at PSU. Joanna is the author of three books of poetry, They Are Sleeping, Circadian, and Raptus. She has been on the faculty of the University of Montana’s MFA Program since 2001, and recently served as the Briggs-Copeland Poet at Harvard.
The aim of this ongoing partnership is to bring national caliber writers to Portland for in-depth teaching opportunities in PSU’s Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Creative Writing, as well as providing them an opportunity to generate new work in a creatively stimulating environment.
One of the perks (or some would argue, hazards) of receiving the Writer-In Residence is you get to live in a lovely apartment situated between the Tin House Books and Magazine offices.
During her stay, Joanna will be providing the occasional dispatch about poetry, her time here in Portland, and what it’s like to live near such a
drunken wonderful editorial staff.
For those lucky enough to call Portland home, Joanna will be reading at 6:30pm next Friday (April 19th) at The Little Church.
