Frederick Dolgin

I am currently attending Chemeketa as a 26-year-old female, majoring in Psychology while pursuing a minor in Business Management. I am on my last leg at Chemeketa and plan to move on to Portland State University to continue my education. I am blessed with a beautiful daughter who is now 6 months old and she definitely keeps me on my toes. I have found my outlet for when times become rough and, as you can guess, it is writing. I have many composition books full of completed pieces of work and some that were just random thoughts to become finished at a later date. The only thing I have to say to those who read this is, never give up on your talents!

My name is Frederick E. Dolgin and I am a transfer student starting Portland State University this fall. My major is Political Science and History. I am originally from Fair Lawn, New Jersey, which is 10 miles outside of New York City. I've been writing poetry since my freshman year in high school. A few of my contemporary influences are Robert Shaw, Ilya Kaminsky, Phillip Levine, Katia Kapovich, Alexei Tsvetkov, Kay Ryan, and Billy Collins.
