Poet Jared Carter

Read the impressive interview

Carol Schott Martino and I


with the awesome poet

Jared Carter back in

the days of Pteranodon.

Please leave a comment.


The Pteranodon magazine cover shown above features numerous poets; pictured are Dr. Barbra Nightingale, professor of poetry and creative writing at Broward College in Hollywood, FL; Dr. Glenn Swentman, writer in residence at William Carey College, Gulf Port, MS; and the late poet and professor of Humanities at the University of South FL in Tampa Dr. Hans Juergensen; the bottom photo is of the famed Indiana poet Jared Carter.

Carol and I met Jared Carter in about 1979 when he was a featured speaker at the Suncoast Writer's Conference in St. Petersburg, FL., and have since attended his readings. You are in for a treat when visiting his Website (link above).

Please watch for revisits to the eight issues of the literary magazine Pteranodon featuring Jared Carter, William Stafford, Richard Eberhart, Richard Shelton and other internationally know poets and writers via <http://liebbooks.com>. We published Pteranodon in 1979-1984.

Hurry Up

Say hello to my friend Hurry Up, one of several gopher tortis living in my yard.

I met up with Hurry Up on the way to the mailbox yesterday. Soon he and all his family will cover themselves under Florida sands for the season.
