Meet Brad Liening, who will teach our writing classes this summer.
Brad Liening is a graduate of the University of Michigan, where he won a Hopwood Award for poetry, and the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where he studied under such well-known poets as Cole Swensen, Robert Hass, Dean Young, and D.A. Powell. He currently teaches writing and literature to college students in the Twin Cities, and before that he taught reading and writing to middle and high school students in California. When he’s not teaching writing or reading lots and lots of books, he has been known to wait tables and make a mean cappuccino. His poetry has appeared in a bunch of journals and magazines, including Mustachioed, the Sonora Review, and Forklift, and a chapbook of poems, Ker-Thunk, was published by H_NGM_N B__KS. He’d like to get a pet but isn’t quite sure if he’s a dog- or a cat-person.
