Guest Biographies

Gary Clark was born and raised in New Haven county, Connecticut.  He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Drama from Dartmouth College in 1986, and a Master of Fine Arts degree in poetry from the University of Oregon in 1992.  He is the Writing Program Director at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont, where he lives with his wife and 3 children.

Monique Daviau is a writer and improviser currently living in Austin. She is completing the third draft of her second novel and has started the first draft of her third novel. (got that?) She has studied writing with many teachers, most notably novelist Elinor Lipman, and favors the novel for its character-building possibilities. Monique can also be seen performing improv comedy around Austin, mostly at the Hideout Theater. She is a graduate of Smith College and the Information School at the University of Texas. These days she is lucky enough to get to focus on her writing full-time but has held several writing-related jobs in the past: as an archivist at the Harry Ransom Center, a lexicographer at Merriam-Webster, and an editorial assistant at Simon & Schuster. Monique has been a resident at the Vermont Studio Center twice and highly recommends the writer’s residency experience.

For more information on the Vermont Studio Center, you may visit its website.

Gary will be calling into the K-O-O-P Radio station from Vermont and Monique will join the Writing on the Air co-hosts in-studio.  Gary will give an overview of the center and possibly read his own poems.  Monique will discuss her experience at the Vermont Studio Center and read from her works. We hope to hear a piece of work that was worked on before, during, and after the Vermont Studio Center.  We invite you to join us for this insightful interview.
