Poet Derek Sheffield And 'The Accretions'

Elizabeth Austen

A letter from a friend causes poet Derek Sheffield to question humanity's place in the universe. The poem is called "The Accretions" and was published in the Fall/Winter 2006 issue of The Georgia Review.

Sheffield is professor of English at Wenatchee Valley College. His chapbook, "A Revised Account of the West" (2008), won the inaugural Hazel Lipa Chapbook Award sponsored by Flyway at Iowa State University. He has served as writer–in–residence at Mount Saint Helens.

His reading was recorded in the KUOW studios on March 23, 2012.
