MICHAEL KNIGHT    author
book michael knight

Michael Knight currently teaches creative writing at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. He has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the New Writing Award from the Fellowship of Southern Writers in 1999, the PEN/Hemingway Foundation Special Citation, also in 1999, and the Henfield Foundation Award for Fiction in 1996. He received his MFA from the University of Virginia where he studied with George Garrett, Deborah Eisenberg and Sydney Blair, and earned his MA from The University of Southern Mississippi where he studied with Frederick Barthelme and his BA from Hampden-Sydney College.

Knight has appeared to speak before audiences large and small, at ladies’ luncheons, at juvenile detention facilities, at festivals on panels with his peers, at workshop seminars. His ability to perceive a writer’s intent in a workshop, his ability to navigate the complicated waters of human emotion and get them onto the page, his willingness to share all of this with students and readers alike are what keep people bringing him back.
