Kevin González

Assistant Professor of English


I teach courses in fiction and poetry.  I'm the author of a collection of poems, Cultural Studies, and am currently at work on a novel, excerpts of which have appeared in Playboy, Narrative Magazine, Best New American Voices, and Best American Nonrequired Reading.  In addition to teaching and writing, I edit the literary magazine jubilat, and, along with Lauren Shapiro, I co-edited an anthology of American poetry titled The New Census (Rescue Press, 2013).  I received a BA in Creative Writing and International Relations from Carnegie Mellon, an MFA in poetry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and an MFA in fiction from the Iowa Writers' Workshop.  Prior to returning to Carnegie Mellon as a faculty member, I was an Assistant Professor at Trinity College in Connecticut.
