His work has appeared or is forthcoming at AGNI, Poetry, Shenandoah, VQR and many others. He teaches at the University of Nevada-Reno.
I'm a bit of collateral damage from WWII. Raised in Bonner, Montana, by my grandparents. Devoted to words from the beginning. Went to high school and college in Missoula, MT, California and Ithaca, NY. I taught at UNR for 28 years. I regard poetry as something hard to do, a craft before it is an art.
Steven Nightingale is the author of two novels, The Lost Coast and Thirteenth Daughter of the Moon, and several books of poetry including The Light in Them is Permanent, Planetary Tambourine, Cartwheels, Cinnamon Theologies and The Golden Pilgrimage.
