Notes from Under Ground Post New Entry

Juan Morales - Guest Critiquer for September 2012!

Posted by undergroundwritingproject on September 27, 2012 at 8:55 AM

We are very please, excited, and somewhat overjoyed to announce that at this month's meeting - THIS Sunday at 3:00p.m. we will be joined by a wonderful poet and teacher: Professor Juan Morales of Colorado State University - Pueblo.


Juan J. Morales was born in the U.S. to an Ecuadorian mother and a Puerto Rican father. He grew up hearing family stories that inspired much of the poems in Friday and the Year that Followed, his first collection of poetry, which was chosen by Vern Rutsala for the 2005 Rhea and Seymour Gorsline Poetry Competition and published by Bedbug Press. Juan received his MFA from the University of New Mexico in 2005. His poetry has also appeared in Acentos Review, Blue Mesa Review, Borderlands: Texas Poetry Review, Copper Nickel, Many Mountains Moving, Palabra, Pilgrimage, Poet Lore, War, Literature, & the Arts, Washington Square, and other journals. He is the Director of Creative Writing and an Assistant Professor at Colorado State University-Pueblo, where he curates the Southern Colorado Reading Series and the student literary magazine Tempered Steel, formerly The Hungry Eye. Currently, Juan is working on his second collection of poems. ~from Juan's website


We can't wait to hear what Juan has to say. Please come and join us.
