Pineda Inks Contract on Third Poetry Collection

Jon Pineda, Assistant Professor of English, has placed his third poetry collection, Little Anodynes, for publication. Nikky Finney, winner of the National Book Award, selected the collection for the Palmetto Poetry Series, and the book will be published in March of 2015 by the University of South Carolina Press.

This March Pineda was a featured panelist at the Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) conference in Seattle, Wash., and a featured reader at the Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville. In May, he will be a panelist and guest novelist at the South Carolina Book Festival in Columbia, S.C., and at the end of the month, he will join the creative writing faculty for the 2014 Tinker Mountain Writers’ Workshop at Hollins University.
