School Email


Ron Spalletta completed a BA in English literature and an MFA in poetry, managed advanced courses and clerkships at Harvard Medical School, worked on research into tobacco control policies through the Harvard School of Public Health, and has published both poems on grief and research on bacteria. For the last several years he has been teaching English classes, editing, and serving as assistant to the director of the Blacksmith House Reading Series. You can easily lose an hour or more with him if you mention Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude, Basho's The Narrow Road to the Deep North, or anything to do with poetry or interdisciplinary teaching.
