Bill Clemente earned a PhD in comparative literature from the University of Oregon and is a professor of English at Peru State College, where he has taught since 1993. Bill teaches a wide variety of classes, including creative writing and children’s literature. He also enjoys Caribbean literature and science fiction, on which he continues to publish articles. His hobbies are photography and bird watching—and toying with blogs and podcasts. You can see some of his bird pictures at the website listed above. In addition to working with college students, Bill has for the past 20 years given creative-writing sessions at elementary schools. “Feathers and Verses” combines creative writing with his hobbies. Bill also enjoys sharing his bird pictures and talking with adult groups.
