Rev. Jeff Munnis: Who Do You Write For? And Why?
The Nittany Valley Writers Network meeting will feature Jeff Munnis, speaking about the ways we enter into different communities of accountability when we ask others to read or listen to our work. Jeff has had two collections of poetry published by Pessoa Press: Next to a River (2007) and Vision (2008). Two more books, Hide of Elephants and The Orange and Blue Drive-In, will be published in 2012. He is the publisher and series editor for Coimbra Editions, whose recent publications include Alchemy of the Word: Writers Talk About Writing (2011) and Between Words: Juan Gelman's Public Letter (2010), whose translation by Lisa Bradford just won the National Translation prize of the American Literary Translators Association. Jeff is also an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ and serves at Trinity United Church of Christ in Hublersburg, PA.
