Hi, I am Alex Zitzner. I am an undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. I “study” creative writing (focusing on poetry), am the Editor-In-Chief of their literary and fine arts journal, NOTA, and also work for the Chippewa Valley Writers Guild as a member of their advisory board. In my free time, I enjoy skateboarding, listening to Lou Reed/The Velvet Underground, and experimenting in different mediums of art.


Alexander Zitzner is a poetry reader for The Adroit Journal and Co-Vice President to the Western Region for the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets. He recently has served as Assistant Arts Administrator to the Cirenaica Writing Residencies in Fall Creek, WI, an intern to the Chippewa Valley based publication Barstow & Grand, and an intern for the Chippewa Valley Writers Guild.
