Poet and UNL alum, Todd Robinson, to share his experiences at book signing Tuesday
...
Todd Robinson urges young writers to kiss a lot. Get out of the house, read and write everyday, he said. Be conscious of passing time. Remember that life is ephemeral - that we are small.
Robinson will share more advice, helpful words and poetry during his book signing at A Novel Idea Bookstore Tuesday.
...
Describing his writing style as "glacial," Robinson said he writes about 50 pages of good poems for every 150 pages of bad poems.
"I would say it's at once grim and funny," Robinson said. "It's fused with popular culture, but it also tries to have a discourse that is connected to higher truths. It's funny; it's handsome; it's ugly."
Whether Robinson is writing about hospital halls, broken eggs or war, other readers agree his style is unique.
...
"It feels like a big conversation with a bunch of writers that will probably never read me," Robinson said. "But that doesn't trouble me a bit - it's just incredibly gratifying playing in that sandbox with them. I'm inspired by their effort and achievement; it makes me want to dream biggest; be bigger; be more insightful. It makes me want to howl."
As a graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Robinson now teaches writing and literature at Creighton University and the Writer's Workshop at the University of Nebraska-Omaha.
Teaching at Creighton is just a way to give back what's been given to him, Robinson said. He described UNO's Writer's Workshop as a creative caldron full of writers, painters, artists, sculptors, graphic designers and seamstresses.
"It feels like you're on this ship sailing to Zanzibar with a bunch of cosmic pilots," Robinson said. "Could I have a better life?"
Robinson has received praise for his work from authors such as Brent Spencer and Marjorie Saiser and continues to make a name for himself in Nebraska.

...
Todd Robinson’s audacity and linguistic verve help distill our contemporary mania (“The drive, the drive/the western ache”). But that’s not all he can do. Sounding his barbaric yawp throughout the brilliant poems in Note at Heart Rock , Robinson manages to accomplish what hardly seems possible. He unites us. He allows us to believe in our uniqueness and our preservation. His ability to create an entire world with all this love in it is a genuine achievement.
...
Robinson writes with equal measures of wit and profundity about every moment of a life, from the tender to the tormented. His subjects are nature, pop culture, big ideas, and the tattered heart. If philosophy had a fist, it would look like a poem by Todd Robinson.
