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.
