7/8ths of the Iceberg: the Rest of Writing
a Craft Talk by Cindy Hardy
Wood Center Conference Room C/D
Friday, April 30th 3:30-4:30 pm


Cindy Hardy and Jean Anderson will be reading from their works on Saturday night, May 1st, 7pm, at the Bear Gallery in Pioneer Park aka Alaskaland. They will finish their reading in time to scoot over to the Empress for the staged reading of Tom Moran's play.
Cindy Hardy was born in Salisbury, Maryland and grew up in horse and farm country in southern Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Penn State University and holds an MFA from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and a Ph.D. from the University of Southern Mississippi.

A past recipient of an Alaska State Council on the Arts Individual Artist grant, Cindy has published poems and stories in Permafrost, The Northern Review, and Ice-Floe: An International Journal of the Far North. Her chapbook, We Tempt Our Luck, was a finalist in the 2008 Astounding Beauty Ruffian Press Poetry Chapbook competition. Her poetry collection Beneath a Portrait of a Horse is newly published by Salmon Press of Ireland.

Cindy writes poems of longing, disappointment, and discovery, of the natural world bumping up against the man-made world, of the small places where we can find respite—the crack in a sidewalk, a conversation on a ferry, the taste of ginger or coffee. She lives in Fairbanks, Alaska, where she teaches at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, dances, gardens, and tends the horses that appear in her poems.

Originally contributed by Kathy J,   Domestic Violence Specialist @ A Safe Place, NH
The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women. 
The t-shirts made at the Women's Center on Friday will be displayed at the Take Back The Night Rally on Friday April 23, 2010 at the UAF campus.   
The Women's Center is located at 112 Eielson Hall on the UAF Campus.
