Poetry at WOU

On Thursday November 19, Western Oregon University was visited by poet Christopher DeWeese. His words filled a room with students in Hamersly Library waiting to hear his poems and rightfully so. All in attendance got to hear from both of his published works and got to ask questions of what he thinks of when he writes and how some of his stories can connect in some way.

He is currently assistant professor of poetry at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio and the author of The Black Forest (Octopus Books 2012) and The Father of the Arrow is the Thought (Octopus Books 2015). Mr. DeWeese draws his influence from his family history and often times from the fables we hear, but can’t put words to.
