Virginia Intermont professor's work published01.06.2006
Virginia Intermont College professor Dan Stryk is continuing to leave his mark on the literary world. Dr. Stryk, one of the region's most widely published writers, has had works recently published in major literary journals: The Harvard Review, Southern Humanities Review, The Missouri Review, Shenandoah, The North American Review, The Ontario Review and The New York Quarterly. Publication in the latter is particularly impressive because it receives more than 50,000 submissions a year.
Stryk, an instructor in creative writing and world literature, is the author of five collections of poems and prose parables, including The Artist and the Crow (Purdue University Press). He is a recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing Fellowship.
Stryk often explores the philosophical challenges that we face in the technology-driven modern world, more and more separated from a connection with nature and simpler values. He has gained regional fame with publication in various local journals, such as Now & Then: The Appalachian Magazine, Appalachian Heritage, The North Carolina Literary Review, The Appalachian Journal, The South Carolina Review and The Asheville Poetry Review.
