Kirpal Gordon's freelance writing life reaches across literary genres. Author of twenty titles of his own work, he consults with and ghostwrites for speakers, seminar companies and entrepreneurs. A national award-winning poet, journalist and editor, he's also a highly praised spoken word artist.
Most recently in New York City, he opened the Howl Festival with a Kerouac tribute and "Searching for Big Daddy Midnight," a Duke Ellington suite with Frank Perowski's Big Band. He played with Claire Daly's Rah-Rah Band, a Rahsaan Roland Kirk-inspired project, at the first Jazz Improv Live Convention; he sat in with Art Baron's Quartet at The Stone; he and his Speak-Spake-Spoke band celebrated their CD release party at Sweet Rhythm. During that time, Telling Stories, Writing Songs, a book on Texas music he edited and pitched to University of Texas Press, entered its second edition. His latest consultancy, on how dental teams can raise their patients' implant dentistry IQ, is now enjoying widespread attention in that industry. His latest editing project is on helping students choose careers more wisely.
Born and raised in New York City, he graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in Religious Studies and Philosophy from Fordham University at Lincoln Center, thanks to a Regents scholarship. He studied creative writing with Norman Dubie at Arizona State University, Allen Ginsberg and Robert Duncan at Naropa Institute and took his M.F.A. degree at the University of Arizona, thanks to the mentorship of Richard Shelton.
He has traveled widely and lived in the mid-Hudson Valley, Texas Hill Country, southern Mexico, the Florida Keys, Arizona's Valley of the Sun and New Orleans. In between writing projects he enjoys building meditation gardens. For a complete list of published work, contact the author directly at KirpalG@aol.com.
