David E. Poston

The China Bay Buffet, 2871 US Hgwy 17S, Chocowinity, NC 27817

David comes to us from Gastonia, NC, where he edits a poetry column for the public library newsletter and teaches occasional creative writing workshops.

He will be bringing in and sharing excerpts from his own writings as well as various writers and texts who have inspired him—from Seamus Heaney to Zora Neal Hurston to the Bible.

David taught for thirty years in various public schools, at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and at Charlotte’s Young Writers’ Workshop.

His work has appeared in various journals, including Asheville Poetry Review, English Journal, Iodine Poetry Journal, Main Street Rag, Nerve Cowboy, The Rain, Party, & Disaster Society , and Wild Goose Poetry Review, and has won awards from the Charlotte Writers’ Club, North Carolina Writers’ Network and Writers’ Workshop of Asheville. His work has also appeared in a number of anthologies, including Earth and Soul: an Anthology of North Carolina Poetry and The Cento: A Collection of Collage Poems. His previous poetry collections are My Father Reading Greek and Postmodern Bourgeois Poetaster Blues, which won the North Carolina Writers’ Network’s Randall Jarrell/Harperprints Poetry Competition in 2007.

To say accomplished is an understatement when speaking of David E. Poston. This luncheon speaker promises to be very interesting, you won't want to miss it.

Come and join us at 11:45am on June 21th at The China Bay Buffet Restaurant in Chocowinity.
