Few and far between these days are the rare type of genius who have worked as a poet, a playwright, as the founder and editor of a journal, and as a professor of English. Jena Osman, who visits Falvey tonight, Nov. 1, at 6:00pm, fits this description perfectly.
Osman, who teaches in the creative writing program at Temple University, has also served as a fellow for the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Penn Humanities Forum, the MacDowell Colony, and the Howard Foundation. In the time since the staging of her play Face and Body in 1988, she has amassed an impressive corpus of published works, including four collections of poetry.
Here are some of the resources available on and by Osman through Falvey’s databases:
- Her 2012 collection, Public Figures
- A short essay on the importance of readings in poetry workshops.
- “First Amendment Rights” from Corporate Relations
- Four other poems from Corporate Relations
- A short bio on Osman
