Fred Von Drasek

Fred Von Drasek got his MFA in poetry from Southern Illinois Carbondale and was a fellow at the National University of Ireland at Galway for the Spring of 2002. He is ABD in contemporary Irish literature and poetry writing at Florida State University. He has taught a little literature and a lot of writing for over ten years and now obsessively downloads old and out-of-print jazz records, even though they don’t have the right smell—or any, he guesses.
