General Info

The Wells College Visiting Writers Series presents a reading by Peter Makuck, founder and former editor of the poetry magazine Tar River Poetry. The event is free and open to the public.

Makuck will read from Allegiance and Betrayal, a collection of short stories published last year by Syracuse University Press. His poems, stories and essays have appeared in The Hudson Review, Poetry, The Southern Review and The Nation, and have been recognized with a Charity Randall Citation from the International Poetry Forum, inclusion in The Best of the LSU Fiction and The Best Essays of 2000, and five honorable mentions in Best American Short Stories. Makuck recently won the Monroe Spears Award "for the best essay to appear in The Sewanee Review in 2010."

Makuck founded Tar River Poetry in 1978 and served as editor until 2006. The magazine, which was listed by the Dictionary of Literary Biography among the top ten poetry journals in the United States, featured an interview with Makuck in the recent 30th anniversary issue.
