Salazar has taught at Fresno State and teaches poetry in prisons.
Veinberg is the author of several poetry collections, including his recent “The Speed Limit of Clouds.” He was co-editor of “Piecework: 19 Fresno Poets”.
He has twice been awarded National Endowment for the Arts grants in poetry. Veinberg’s work also has appeared in numerous literary magazines and anthologies.
The Fresno Poets’ Association is now a formal program of Fresno State in conjunction with the Master of Fine Arts creative writing program.
