Zedolik, John
For thirteen years I taught English and Latin in a private school. Eventually, I wrote a dissertation that focused on the pragmatic comedy of the Canterbury Tales, thereby completing my Ph.D. in English. Currently I am an adjunct instructor at a number of universities in and around Pittsburgh. However, I have had many jobs in my life including archaeological field assistant, obituary writer, and television-screen-factory worker, which—I hope—have contributed in positive ways to my writing. I have had poems published in such journals as The Alembic, Ascent Aspirations (CAN), The Bangalore Review (IND), Common Ground Review, The Journal (UK), Pulsar Poetry Webzine (UK), Third Wednesday, Transom, and in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. I also have numerous poems forthcoming next year. My iPhone is now my primary poetry notebook, and I hope my use of technology in regard to this ancient art form continues to be fruitful.
