|Andrew H. Oerke|
Oerke recently returned to poetry, his first love, after many years in development work with the Peace Corps and other voluntary organizations.
Poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The New Republic, Poetry, and in numerous other magazines. In 2006 two new books of poetry, African Stiltdancer and San Miguel de Allende, were published jointly by Swan Books and the UN Society for Writers and Artists. They have received the United Nations Literature Award.
