Author/Artist Bio

Jay Paul chairs the Department of English at Christopher Newport University. He has published about 200 poems, as well as critical studies, book reviews and short fiction. Going Home in Flood Time is his first poetry collection. Henry Taylor said, "Jay Paul keeps a well-stocked toolbox. He combines quiet tone and witty invention, and he responds with a considerable variety of formal techniques to a world that might be called 'ordinary' if his language hadn't lifted so many bright moments into a higher realm."


Paul read with Jane Ellen Glasser and Shelly Wagner on Monday, October 11th, 1999 at 7:00 p.m.
