DAVID STARKEY is the Poet Laureate of Santa Barbara and Director of the Creative Writing Program at Santa Barbara City College. Among my poetry collections are Starkey’s Book of States (Boson Books, 2007), Adventures of the Minor Poet (Artamo Press, 2007), Ways of Being Dead: New and Selected Poems (Artamo, 2006), David Starkey’s Greatest Hits (Pudding House, 2002) and Fear of Everything, winner of Palanquin Press’s Spring 2000 chapbook contest. A Few Things You Should Know about the Weasel was published by Biblioasis in May--two of the poems from the book were recently featured on Garrison Keillor's A Writer's Almanac. In addition, over the past twenty years I have published more than 400 poems in literary journals such as Alaska Quarterly Review, American Scholar, Antioch Review, Beloit Poetry Journal, Cincinnati Review, Greensboro Review, The Journal, Massachusetts Review, Mid-American Review, Notre Dame Review, Poetry East, Southern Review, Southern Humanities Review, and Southern Poetry Review. I have also written two textbooks: Creative Writing: Four Genres in Brief (Bedford/St. Martin’s, 2008) and Poetry Writing: Theme and Variations (McGraw-Hill, 1999). With Paul Willis, I co-edited In a Fine Frenzy: Poets Respond to Shakespeare (Iowa, 2005), and I am the editor of Living Blue in the Red States (Nebraska, 2007). Keywords in Creative Writing, which I co-authored with the late Wendy Bishop, was published in 2006 by Utah State University Press.
