About the authors:

Jim Fowler

Jim Fowler is a former member of the UCA English Department faculty. In May of 2023, he retired after a distinguished career as a teacher, poet, and scholar — a career that included 25 years as editor of Slant, the department’s international journal of contemporary poetry. As a poet and fiction writer, Jim has published work in dozens of literary journals over the years, and it has been collected in two volumes: The Pain Trader and Other Poems (Golden Antelope Press: 2020) and Field Trip: Stories (Cornerpost Press: 2022). His latest collection of poems, Postcards from Home, is scheduled for publication later this year. To honor Jim on his retirement, as well as his predecessor as Slant editor Richard Hudson, the UCA English Department created a new award, the Hudson-Fowler Prize in Poetry.

Jennie Case

Jennie Case is an Associate Professor of Creative Writing at UCA, where she also serves as faculty advisor of Arkana, the literary journal staffed and run by students in the MFA program. She is the author of Sawbill: A Search for Place (University of New Mexico Press, 2018). Her essays, poetry, and prose have appeared widely in journals such as Orion, ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment, Zone 3, North American Review, Poet Lore, and Stone Canoe, which awarded her work the 2014 Allen and Nirelle Galson Prize in Fiction.
