The master class, titled "On Sestinas and Stories: Writing across Genres," will take place at 5:30 p.m. in the Faculty Parlors lounge, located on the first floor of the College's Main Building. The public reading will take place the same evening at 7:30 p.m. in the Art Exhibit Room, on the third floor of Macmillan Hall. Admission is free for both events, and all are welcome.
The author of ten books, David Lloyd's published fiction includes "Boys: Stories and a Novella" (2004); his 2013 novel, "Over the Line"; and a new story collection, "The Moving of the Water." His poetry collections include "Warriors" (2012), "The Gospel According to Frank" (2009) and "The Everyday Apocalypse" (2002). In 2001, he was a Fulbright Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence at Bangor University, Wales. In 2000, he received the Poetry Society of America's Robert H. Winner Memorial Award, judged by W. D. Snodgrass.
Lloyd's articles, interviews, poems, and stories have appeared in numerous journals, including "Crab Orchard Review," "Denver Quarterly" and "TriQuarterly." He currently directs the creative writing program and is professor of English at Le Moyne College in Syracuse.
The Visiting Writers series at Wells College presents several events each semester featuring authors who have distinguished themselves in poetry, fiction or nonfiction. These writers not only give public readings of their work—they also conduct writing workshops, participate in classes and discussions, and often hold individual conferences with interested student writers. The Visiting Writers Series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
