Image of Rich and his dogs
Rich Furman, PhD, is an assistant professor in the School of Social Work at Colorado State University, his poetry has been published or is soon to be published in Red Rock Review, Colere, Pearl, Hawai’i Review, Black Bear Review, The Journal of Poetry Therapy, Poetry Motel, Penn Review, and well over 100 poems in nearly 100 literary journals His work has been described as neither street nor beat nor meat nor academic, but an emotionally evocative mix of styles that can be brutally imagistic or powerfully terse. His scholarly writing is concerned with social work ethics, international social work, friendship, social work theory and social work practice. He teaches group and practice courses in the BSW and MSW programs. He is married to a wonderful women who has more freckles than there are craters on the moon, has two children, loves to mountain bike, and is slightly obsessed with his two spectacular, drooling American Bull dogs. He loves Vietnamese beef noodle soup, Pho, and would gratefully accept any express mailed shipments of it from regions afar. You can’t find it in the plains of northern Colorado. Mostly, he just likes to live as fully as possibly. He welcomes feedback, comments and dialogue about his work. His first chapbook of poetry, of only average intent, was printed by Snorting Dog Press in 2002. He is currently seeking a publisher for his first full-length book, The Trotting Race of Time, 72 pages of poems which subtlety deal with the social conditions in Latin America, alienation, and triumph. Besides reviewing his book, Jazz and Some Sorrow - Selcted Early Works: 1991-1993 in our free e-book download section, you may also listen to Rich reading some of his works right here in our Poets' Coop's growing MP3 collection.
