Lynne Spigelmire Viti

Senior Lecturer Emerita in the Writing Program


My focus is on writing poetry and fiction, and teaching workshops and short courses in literature and poetry and memoir writing, especially to retirees.

I was awarded Honorable Mentions in the WOMR, Joe Gouveia Outermost Poetry Contest for my poems "Rene and Marcella," (2018) "Biography," (2019) "Meditations at Newcomb Hollow Beach," (2020) and "Cooking for One, in Winter" (2022); the Glimmer Train 2014 short fiction contest for my short story, “Tony Bennett, Aldous Huxley, and Eddie;” and the 2015 Allen Ginsberg Poetry Award for my poem, “Pâtissière." 

My essay, "I Got the Shotgun, You Got the Briefcase: Judging, Lawyering and Ethics," appears in the critical anthology, The Wire: Urban Decay and American Television (ed. Potter and Marshall, Continuum Press, 2009).
