Episode 47 - Jim Gustafson
Jim Gustafson holds a Master of Divinity from Garrett Theological Seminary at Northwestern University in his home town of Evanston, Illinois and an MFA from the University of Tampa. He is the author of Take Fun Seriously, Driving Home, Unassisted Living, and Friar Fred’s Diary - the first two of which are essays, and the second two books of poetry. Jim teaches at Florida Gulf Coast University. He and his wife Connie live in Fort Myers, where he reads, writes, and pulls weeds.
I first started getting to know Jim during my time at the Alliance for the Arts, where I worked for a while, through a project he spearheaded called Broadsides: Poetry off the Shelf, which combined works of art that were inspired by poems with the poems themselves, creating finished, printed broadsides.
