As an artist, poet, scholar and teacher, Alana Sherrill is constantly looking for connections between interests. Her latest literary research focuses on "place poetry" of N.C. writers; Ron Rash, Kay Byer, and Robert Morgan, while her latest pedagogical research examines using creative, authentic products to engage students in writing. Sherrill's conference presentations this year include NCTE and Appalachian Studies Association. Her poems have recently appeared in Emrys, Main Street Rag, and When Women Waken, and her most recent art show was "The Little Things" at Delurk Gallery in Winston Salem.
