His newsletter contains the poem Zombifurcation that he chose for one reading. The Ort Library owns two of his fiction works: Grave Markings and Play Dead.

Poet Allison Joseph and non-fiction writer Tim Wendel attended the reception and read at the FSU’s Center for Creative Writing Conference the previous evening. Collections of Joseph’s poems, My Father’s Kites, Voice: Poems, Soul Train and In Every Seam and a copy of Wendel’s nonfiction book Castro’s Curveball are available at the Ort Library.
