Visiting Writer’s Series continues with alumna Wendy Dunmeyer

Cameron University’s Visiting Writer’s Series continues on Friday, April 26, with poet Wendy Dunmeyer. The author will read samples of her work starting at 7 p.m. in Room 2005 in Nance-Boyer Hall.

Dunmeyer’s poetry collection, “My Grandmother’s Last Letter,” is forthcoming this spring from Lamar University Literary Press. She has presented her poetry at the Scissortail Creative Writing Festival and Sigma Tau Delta’s Third Saturday Open Readings. Her work has appeared in Measure, Natural Bridge, The Oklahoma Review, Cumberland River Review and elsewhere. Her poetry also has been selected as a finalist for the Morton Marr Poetry Prize and received an honorable mention award at NDSU’s 2022 Poetry of the Plains and Prairies Chapbook Contest. In December 2023, one of her poems was featured in the Bismarck Arts & Galleries Association visual-arts exhibition, “The Artistry of Trees.”

To encourage future generations of poetry lovers and young poets, Dunmeyer has taught poetry workshops for children at her local library and volunteered as a visiting writer for National Poetry Month at local elementary schools. In addition to two chapbooks, she currently is working on two children’s books written in poetic forms and another full-length collection.

A Cameron alumna, Dunmeyer graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English in 2004. She received her Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from the Sewanee School of Letters, University of the South, in 2012.

The Visiting Writer’s Series is co-sponsored by Cameron University Lectures and Concerts, the Department of Communication, English and Foreign Languages, and Sigma Tau Delta.
