Westminster English Professor Presents Paper at Writing Conference

Dr. David Swerdlow, professor of English at Westminster College, presented a paper at the Associated Writing Programs annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Swerdlow's paper, "The Unknown Master of the Pure Poem Walks Nightly Among His Roses: Traveling Toward the Idea of God with Charles Wright," celebrates the 70th birthday of poet Charles Wright, a Pulitzer Prize winner.

"My paper was part of a session celebrating his achievements," Swerdlow said.  "Specifically, I discussed the splendid failure of his poetic pilgrimage toward a personal relationship with God.  I also discussed his commitment to writing a body of poetry rather than individual poems."
