An Afternoon with Dorothy Ellis Barnett
December 16, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join us for an afternoon with Dorothy Ellis Barnett, who will read from her poetry and short stories.
Dorothy Ellis Barnett landed in Austin, Texas after a hardscrabble childhood growing up on the riverbeds, campgrounds and roads of the Southwest. While at The University of Texas she obtained a B.A. in Anthropology, an M.A. in English and was awarded a James A. Michener Fellowship. Together with her Fellows, she founded Borderlands: Texas Poetry Review, then went on to launch The Rio Review and Poetry at Round Top, leaving over 50 literary journals in print along the literary highway. These publications have promoted, encouraged, and inspired countless writers and artists. Dorothy subsequently earned her M.F.A. from Pacific Lutheran University. She is now Professor Emerita at Austin Community College where she founded and created the Creative Writing Department. She is a former Board Member of the Writers’ League of Texas and is currently on the organizational committee for Poetry at Round Top held at Festival Hill each Spring. While her path has left a legacy for the literary community that includes her own publications, it pales in comparison to her role as wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
