Jeffrey Dunn reads "The Albatross" by Charles Baudelaire

Writer, culture critic and teacher Jeffrey Dunn

Poets, like the albatross, cannot walk beneath the weight of their own wings

Jeffrey Dunn—writer, culture critic, teacher and dyslexic—holds a PhD in Culture Studies and English Literature. For forty years his teaching has integrated natural history, creative writing, DIY publication, film and psychology—all summed up as place-based learning.

His first novel, Dream Fishing the Little Spokane, has been described as “melancholic, irreverent, untamed” (Kirkus Reviews) and “a hoot that goes down easy” (natural historian Jack Nisbet). His interview “A Conversation: Ginsberg on Burroughs” was anthologized in Conversations with Allen Ginsberg (2019) edited by David Stephen Calonne.
