State Poet tries hand at fiction
\ .
By JoshKrauter
Senior staff writer
William Kloefkom is primarily a
poet, but he’s been obsessed with the
narrative story as long as he can remem
Kloefkom, the Nebraska State Poet,
grew up in Attica, Kan., a town of about
600 people. Kloefkom’s love of stories
and storytelling began there.
“I knew everybody, and I listened to
their stories,” he said.
Kloefkom says his stories come
from people and events in his past. He
has four children and 11 grandchildren,
and he gets stories from them.
“There are stories everywhere,” he
He didn’t tell his own stories until
college, he said, and he didn’t get seri
ous'about writing until graduate school.
“I didn’t write at an early age,” he
said. “(In college), my professors’ inter
est rubbedoff on me. I wrote partly out
of an admiration to tell stories and part
ly out of envy.”
He was envious of writers such as
Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway and
'William Faulkner and books such as
“Other Voices, Other Rooms” by
Truman Capote. The ability of these
writers to put their lives into their art
influenced Kloefkom then and now.
“I wanted to transfer my own expe
rience into writing,” he said.
His new book, “A Time to Sink Our
Pretty Little Ship,” is a collection of four
short stories published by Logan House
Press. It’s a change of pace for
Kloefkom, who usually writes poetry.
“I’ve wanted to write fiction for a
long time,” he said. “I’ve dabbled in it
for a long time... I’ve just always had a
kind of fascination for stories, whether
they’re told orally or on the page.”
Kloefkom said the book was “rather

“Three of the four stories have kind
of an initiation theme,” he said. “Not all
four of them follow that strictly.”
Later this month, Kloefkom will
give a reading for the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln English department,
though the official date has not been set.
He said he would read excerpts from
two of his stories and would discuss His
creative process.
Kloefkom said fiction writing was
harder for him than poetry.
“Fiction takes a lot more time for
me,” he said. “I have to sit down and stay
with it for a long period of time.”
He said poetry doesn’t require the
research and attention to detail that fic
tion does.
<-■ “Fiction writers are nuts,” he said.
“They’re crazy, but they’re wonderfully
crazy. I admire them greatly*
But Kloefkom’s dabbling in fiction
probably won’t extend into novels.
“I wrote a novel for my master’s the
sis,” he said. “And it’s unpublished,
thank God.”
ivioeiKorn, a reurea iNeorasica
Wesleyan University English professor,
has received a lot of attention for his
poetry. In 1982, a governor-appointed
committee made a recommendation to
then-governor Charles Thone for
Kloefkorn to be named State Poet.
Thone passed the recommendation
along to the Legislature, which made
the title official.
“There were quite a number of peo
ple nominated,” he said. “I was both
happy and surprised (to be named State
Poet) -1 still am.”
It’s a title Kloefkorn will hold for his
