CCU professor-poet to speak at Moveable Feast

  Dan Albergotti  
Coastal Carolina University professor-poet Dan Albergotti will be the featured speaker for the Moveable Feast on Friday, Sept. 8, at Pawleys Plantation.

He will replace Roland Merullo ("Golfing with God") who had to cancel for health reasons. Albergotti's poems have appeared in Ascent, Meridian, Mid-American Review, Prairie Schooner, The Southern Review, The Virginia Quarterly Review and other journals. He was a Tennessee Williams Scholar at the 2003 Sewanee Writers' Conference, a fellow at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in 2004, and the Richard Soref Scholar in Poetry at the 2004 Bread Loaf Writers' Conference.

Albergotti's chapbook, "Charon's Manifest," won the 2005 Randall Jarrell/Harperprints Chapbook Competition, and one of his poems was reprinted in Best New Poets 2005. His poem "Things to Do in the Belly of the Whale" won the 2005 Oneiros Press Poetry Broadside Contest and will be printed in a limited letterpress edition in late 2006. A graduate of the MFA program at UNC Greensboro and former poetry editor of The Greensboro Review, he currently serves as associate poetry editor of storySouth and teaches at Coastal Carolina University.

The Moveable Feast, literary luncheons featuring local, regional and national authors at various area restaurants, is held each Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Reservations should be made the Wednesday prior; the fee is $25.
