A Little Poetry


My college writing professor and very talented poet, Carl Winderl, has released new book of poems. The collection has been nominated for the Conference on Christianity and Literature 2008 Book of the Year and is available via Finishing Line Press.

My comment is in reference to your writing and not your former professor's (although I'm sure he's first-rate). I just read and enjoyed Shoes, Falling on The Summerset Review. Usually I think the first-person, self-reflexive "you" narrator is a gimmick, but this story couldn't have been told any other way. Well done.

Hi Michelle, thank you so much for taking a moment to let me know you enjoyed the story.

I worried about coming across as "gimmicky" while writing it, and even tried to revise at one point, but in the end it is as it was supposed to be, I think.

Your comment reminds me that I've been wanting to go and seek out author-sites for some of the literary work I've enjoyed online. Encouragement is a good thing.

Even though I was a Biology major, he was one of my favorite professors....
But I've never read his poetry....I guess I should:)
