He's presented at the CRLA National Conference, the Colorado Performance Poetry Festival, the Tucson Poetry Festival, two seasons in a row at Solofest, a couple of strange late night sightings at the 3Sided(W)Hole, and at the NMCRLA conference. He's a teacher by trade at Central New Mexico Community College, where he also manages the tutoring center.
An avid bicyclist, he and his partner gave up their cars in August of 2010 and have been writing about the transition to biking in a city that is clearly designed with cars, not bikes, in mind.
Bio for introduction:
Don McIver really hates long, "Hey, look at all the amazing stuff I've done bios." To be short and sweet about it, he's published, read a lot of different places, produced poetry shows big and small, and is generally a nice guy. He hates when writers use disclaimers before reading their work and kind of thinks his writing and how he reads it should speak for itself. Please welcome....
