Alan Ainsworth was a WITS writer in the early 1990s. After he finished his PhD at the Univeristy of Houston, he began teaching at Houston Community College (HCC). He is the Chair of the English Department and HCC Central and has recently published a text book called 75 Arguments (McGraw-Hill, 2008).
This week four of Alan’s poems are part of a Dance Concert on April 17 and 18. Mary Carol Warwick has composed music and Deborah Quanaim is choreographing dances to fit four of Alan’s odd, quirky poems. The poems involve a heckler, a guy with an elephant in his eye, a fable of Space and Time, and a neighborhood that’s suddenly come alive with chopsticks.
Here are some details about the rest of the program:
