Susan Horn, “Prairie Wolves In Print: I Am Because We Are”

Susan is a working fine artist who teaches photography and digital media at Nebraska Wesleyan University. She won a National Endowment for the Arts/Mid-America-Arts-Alliance Fellowship and was one of the subjects for a Nebraska Educational Television special called “Picture Nebraska”.

William Kloefkorn, “Prairie Wolves in Print: Where to Start”

It’s a sign of Bill’s proclivity as Nebraska’s state poet that even after his death in May of last year, new books with his words continue to appear. First came Moments of Delicate Balance, a book of poetry that was in production when he died. (Watch for our review in an upcoming issue.) Then came a foreword to Sam Renken’s (’01) first book of poems, Where to Start. We reprint the bulk of that introduction with Renken’s permission. That Bill was willing to commit his waning energy in the last weeks of his life to write a foreword for another poet’s debut speaks loudly in favor of both men.
