About the Founder: Dr Ian Copestake

I am a native English-speaking academic who has lived in Frankfurt am Main for 15 years and balance scholarly research with teaching, editing and translation.
 I have been editor of the William Carlos Williams Review since 2007 (published by Penn State UP) and helped found the Lowell/Bishop Journal which is forthcoming from the same press. I received my Ph.D in 2000 from the School of English, University of Leeds, and taught for five years at the JWGoethe University in Frankfurt.
