Frederick Smock
Frederick Smock was born on Akhmatova's birthday, St. John's Eve, in 1954. He has published three books of poems with Larkspur Press, a letterpress publisher - Gardencourt, The Good Life, and Guest House. The Iowa Review, Poetry, Shenandoah, The Southern Review, and The International Quarterly are among the many American journals to have published his poetry.
Mr. Smock was the founding editor of The American Voice, the international literary journal published in Louisville for fifteen years - during that time he published many of the ground-breaking authors working throughout the Americas. In 1999, when he closed the journal, he published a retrospective collection, The American Voice Anthology of Poetry, with the University Press of Kentucky.
He holds degrees from Georgetown College and the University of Louisville. He has received an Al Smith fellowship in poetry, and won the 2002 Henry Leadingham Award for Poetry from the Frankfort Arts Foundation. He has also published a travel memoir, This Meadow of Time: A Provence Journal, with Sulgrave Press.  Mr. Smock is currently poet-in-residence at Bellarmine University, in Louisville, where he teaches creative writing, literature, and art criticism; each summer, he teaches in Denmark with the KIIS Consortium.
Mr. Smock serves on the advisory editorial boards of the Kentucky Writers Coalition, Paris Press, and The Louisville Review.
