Julie Gard’s prose poetry collection I Think I Know You was recently released by FutureCycle Press. Home Studies (New Rivers Press) was a finalist for the Minnesota Book Award, and additional publications include Scrap: On Louise Nevelson (Ravenna Press) and two chapbooks. She lives in Duluth, Minnesota and teaches writing at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.

Emily August is an Associate Professor of Literature at Stockton University. Her scholarly research focuses on depictions of medicine and the body in 19th-century literary and scientific texts, in order to discover how a singular, normative version of the human body became the authoritative clinical standard of medical health. Her debut poetry collection, The Punishments Must Be a School (forthcoming from The Word Works in June 2023), explores themes of domestic violence and intergenerational trauma. Her poems have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and Best New Poets, and have appeared in Callaloo, Cimarron Review, Missouri Review, Ninth Letter, Southern Humanities Review, and other journals. She divides her time between Lake Superior’s North Shore and the Atlantic Ocean’s Jersey Shore.

My favorite thing about FDLTCC is the people. I’ve met fantastic students, faculty and staff who go above and beyond what I expected.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.
