Academic 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.

Non-academic interests:

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.

Notable awards:

2016 Minnesota Book Award Finalist, and 2016 UW-Superior's Scholarly Activity Award

Areas of knowledge:

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

Recent accomplishments:

Over the past two decades, I have written creatively, taught creative writing, and published my work in journals and anthologies. I have three published prose poetry collections and one forthcoming.
