Greetings! I am David Wolf, Professor of English at Simpson College, where I teach courses in creative writing, composition, contemporary literature, and literary theory. I am the author of five collections of poetry, Open Season, The Moment Forever, Sablier (Book I), Sablier II, and Visions (with artist David Richmond). My work has appeared in The Hampden-Sydney Poetry Review, Hiram Poetry Review, New York Quarterly, Poet & Critic, River Styx Magazine, and numerous other literary magazines and journals. I am also the literary editor for Janus Head: Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature, Continental Philosophy, Phenomenological Psychology, and the Arts. Born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, I have lived in Oxford, UK, and in New York, NY, where I worked for several years in magazine publishing. I enjoy traveling and playing in my two bands Weather Beacon Blue and The Sonny Humbucker Band.
