I am Cezarija Abartis

I was born in Bollstadt, Germany in 1945 and came to the U.S. in 1950. She is a professor of English at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota.

I participated in the on-line workshop in 1999, and my story, “On Grandmother’s Farm,” was featured in the October 1999 on-line issue: www.zoetrope.com/files/pri/168/czoe.htm

A collection of my short stories, NICE GIRLS AND OTHER STORIES, was published in 2003 by New Rivers Press at Minnesota State University-Moorhead. Four of the stories were workshopped here, and I’m grateful for the comments of the reviewers.

In a review on NewPages.com, Sima Rabinowitz writes, “These stories are as good the second time through as they are the first. Always, for me, a measure of success.” Gosh.
