DAVID MCCLEERY, a poet and artist living in Lincoln, is editor of A Slow Tempo Press, in Lincoln, and the literary journal Leaves of Grass. He is also an alumnus of the Plains Writers Series, a foundation dedicated to bringing regional poets and writers to campuses statewide. David also organized the radio show "Poets of the Plains", for KZUM in Lincoln, a two-year project that eventually recorded interviews and readings with thirty-two Nebraska writers. These tapes are available at the Bennet Martin branch of the Lincoln Library. He's the Pipe Major for the Lincoln Pipe Band ( and says, "I swim way too much and am thinking about running another marathon this spring." In recent years, he has moved from writing into visual arts, exhibiting his photography at the City County Building in Lincoln and in an upcoming exhibition through the Nebraska Arts Council at the Fred Simon gallery in Omaha. He feels he has found his true voice in black and white film and might at some point return to writing and incorporate his writing, but for now he's very pleased with the results and with that change in direction, focus/awareness. He's would also entertain writers who would be interested in using his images for book covers or other projects.
