Nature of Words Names New Executive Director 

Robert McDowell is named as Ellie Waterson's successor.

The Nature of Words announced today that Robert McDowell will succeed NOW founder Ellen Waterson as Executive Director of the local literary non-profit. McDowell, co-founder and executive director of Story Line Press, has authored five books of poetry and has published the works of five Pulitzer Prize recipients, six U.S. Poet Laureates, and a Nobel laureate. McDowell is slated to take over NOW starting May 14 but Waterson will stay on until June to assist with the transition.

While we'll miss Ellie (she plans to remain involved, but is looking to support Oregon State University-Cascades Campus with their proposed Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Creative Writing program, among other things) we look forward to a new chapter at NOW with Mr. McDowell.
