Robb Jackson is currently the Haas Professor of English at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. Robb’s poetry originates from his journal writing practice and is informed by close observation of the place he now calls home, Corpus Christi, Texas. Robb also works extensively with addicts and alcoholics in a court-ordered rehabilitation program where he teaches residents poetry and journaling techniques as part of their recovery. Robb’s first book of poetry, Living on the Hurricane Coast, contains poems that stem from his transition from his northern roots to south Texas. Crane Creek, Two Voices, which contains poems by Robb and Vanessa Furse Jackson, will be published by Fithian Press in summer 2011.
