Stark Visiting Writer at UD: Gregory Wolfe

I had the pleasure of meeting the Starks this weekend at our Phoenix Groundhog celebration (which was better than all other Groundhog celebrations).  They are excellent people, and I’m pretty sure that they love UD, and so do I, so here is something that they are helping to put on with Dr. Osborn.  If you’re in the Dallas area, this looks pretty great, and so I hope that you can attend these lectures.

Gregory Wolfe is Writer in Residence at Seattle Pacific University and founding editor of the literary arts-and-religion quarterly Image. He also directs the MFA program in creative writing at SPU and has served as a judge for the National Book Awards. Wolfe’s essays, reviews, and articles have appeared in numerous journals, including Commonweal and First Things, and have been anthologized in collections such as The Best Christian Writing and The Best Catholic Writing. Intruding Upon the Timeless: Meditations on Art, Faith & Mystery was published in 2004; a new collection, Beauty Will Save the World: Recovering the Human in an Ideological Age (ISI) is forthcoming this June.

Both events, made possible by the Stark Fund for Creative Writing, are free and open to the public.
