MCC Instructor's Collection of Poems Published

(Bradenton, Fla., Dec. 5, 2005) - A collection of poems, Provocations of the Birds and the Beach, by Manatee Community College (MCC) instructor Dr. Len Blanchard,  was published recently by Bellowing Ark Press, Seattle, Wash.

"Here is writing with texture, depth and a resonance that is both subtle and evocatively powerful," said reviewer Lucas Doolin, editor of Commonsense.

Blanchard published an epic poem about Crazy Horse, An American Passion, through AuthorHouse in 2001. Approximately 200 of his poems have appeared in more than 60 literary magazines and journals nationwide, and his poems have been nominated three times for a prestigious Pushcart Prize.

With MCC since 1999, Blanchard earned a master's degree and a Ph.D. at Emory University, Atlanta. He is listed in Who's Who in America, Who's Who in the World, Who's Who in Finance and Business and Who's Who Among America's Teachers.
