Trevor Code, has been a member of the WCPA since 1981, but his WCPA contact began when he met Michael True and Kenneth Koch in 1975. He joined the Board in 1992 and was Vice President for Programming (1998-2004). Through the Association he helped establish readings in libraries and schools. He directed projects for the Hudson River paintings and the Modernism and Abstraction exhibitions at the Worcester Art Museum, and with the “Celebration of Worcester Poets” worked with First Night Worcester in 2000, 2001 and 2003. He was instrumental in making WCPA aware of Frank O’Hara as a Worcester poet, and in the consequent celebration of New York poets with David Lehmann in 2002.
He began his teaching career in Australia where he was the original chair of Literature and Writing at Deakin University and, in Worcester he was a professor in Humanities at WPI. Through the illness of Jennifer, his wife (author of The Mad Angel), these two writers moved to Australia in 2004, and Trevor continues to write and research. His recent publications include the chapbooks: Mopoke Hill (2005); bear snake crayfish frog (2006); Sonnets, Mutations & Fourteeners (200o); Sun-Dried(2007) and, through Odrerir Books: Stage by Stage (2009); For One Brief Instant (2009); Which Way the Wind (2010); and Configurations (2012).
