Poetry Reading by David Oprava

The English Department at Bridgewater State University is pleased announce a reading by Dr. David Oprava of Cardiff Metropolitan University, Wales, on Tuesday, Feb. 7, at 3:15 in the Heritage Room in the Maxwell Library. All are welcome to attend. 

Dr. Oprava is an award winning writer of experimental prose and poetry. He has published six collections of poems and most recently, an illustrated novel that crosses the boundaries of prose, poetry, art, and philosophy. He holds a PhD from Swansea University and although American by birth, has been living and working in the UK for the past twenty years, the last seven of which he has been at Cardiff Metropolitan University in Wales where he is the Subject Leader for Creative Writing. 

His interests include transgressive literature and experimentation, with a keen eye to pushing the boundaries of what writing can do with shape, form, and meaning.
