From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Terry Hertzler is an American poet and writer born in Mansfield, Ohio, in 1949.

Hertzler is the owner of Caernarvon Press, a small literary press based in San Diego, California, that publishes both well-known and emerging writers. Hertzler's own work includes several chapbooks of poetry and fiction as well as The Way of the Snake, a book of poetry based on his experiences as a soldier in the war in Vietnam, and Second Skin (ISBN 0-9716383-2-2), of which Dorianne Laux said, "Second Skin provides ample evidence that poetry can be both accessible and powerful, that writing doesn't have to be obscure or difficult to make us think, to move us. Hertzler paints word pictures whose images stay with the reader long after the book is closed." His work has been nominated for The Pushcart Prize and has been widely published in poetry journals and anthologies, including The Writer, Literal Latte, North American Review, Margie, Nimrod, Stand Up Poetry: An Expanded Anthology (University of Iowa Press) and In the Palm of Your Hand: The Poet’s Portable Workshop (Tilbury House, Publishers). His poetry has also been produced on stage and for radio and television.
