About

Julie takes full advantage of the foraging opportunities of the Northland, including berries and fiddlehead ferns, and also enjoys time with family, friends, and pets; the regional literary scene; and travel within and outside of the U.S.

Professional Background

Julie Gard received her B.A. in English from Grinnell College and her M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the University of Minnesota. She was a Fulbright Graduate Fellow in Vladivostok, Russia and has traveled by train across Western and Eastern Europe, Siberia, and northern China. She writes and publishes prose poetry, lyric essays, and flash fiction, and her book Home Studies was a finalist for the Minnesota Book Award. She enjoys teaching creative, professional, and academic writing at UW-Superior.

Research Interests

Julie is currently obsessed with the fine line between different genres of experimental writing -- for example, what's the difference between a lyric essay and a prose poem series? She'll be glad to tell you once she figures it out. She is also collaborating with a visual artist on an ekphrastic project that consists of back-and-forth expressions created off of each other's photographic and poetic work. As Dorothy Parker wisely said, "The only cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity." She has found this to be a useful quote to live and write by.

Areas of Knowledge

Creative writing, creative writing pedagogy, prose poetry, and experimental and cross-genre writing
