Rybak’s  earns outstanding achievement award

Chuck Rybak, associate professor of English and Humanistic Studies, received word recently that his latest book of poems, </war> , has received a 2013 Outstanding Achievement Award from the Wisconsin Library Association. Each year, the WLA’s Literary Awards Committee reviews approximately 250 books by Wisconsin authors published during the previous calendar year and selects several to be recognized as outstanding books. The books are judged on their literary merit as well as the quality of the writing, editing, printing and publishing. (Note: It’s now a clean sweep for the family, as Rybak’s spouse and the other half of the creative writing faculty team, Associate Prof. Rebecca Meacham, won similar recognition from WLA in 2005 for her short story collection, Let’s Do.)
