Sheila-Na-Gig Looks Great on Resumes!

“I also wanted to tell you that when I was interviewing for a management position at Walgreen’s in late 1994, I took along my contributor’s copy of Sheila-Na-Gig to show the interviewer that I was a person of substance and high accomplishment. It must have helped because I got the job. However, it took me away from writing for pretty much the next ten years….” Richard King Perkins II

I co-founded the small press poetry magazine Sheila-Na-Gig in California in 1990. I ran the press for 10 years, producing 14 print copies of the journal. I now hold a Ph.D. in 20th Century American Literature from Ohio University and an MFA in poetry from the University of Washington. I am currently an Associate Professor of English at Ohio University Southern, where I teach courses in composition, American literature, and creative writing. My poetry, creative nonfiction, and critical essays have appeared, or are forthcoming, in The Brock Review, Proteus, Rattle, Spillway, and the critical anthologies, The Body in Medical Culture; On the Literary Nonfiction of Nancy Mairs; and Stephen King’s Contemporary Classics: Reflections on the Modern Master of Horror.
