About the City's Organizers

  • Dianne Bechtel

    Dianne Bechtel received her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, 2007. Dianne taught Freshman Composition, Argument and Analysis, and Technical Writing at the University of New Mexico with strong emphasis in ethical research skills, argument and analysis, in addition to course affiliations with the Honors College and the Anderson School of Management’s Innovation Academy (iA). She has also taught Creative Writing and Developmental English. During the 2011-2012 academic year, Dianne won UNM’s Office of Support for Effective Teaching (OSET/CTE), Outstanding Lecturer/Affiliated Teacher of the Year Award. She also served on the faculty senate. Publications: “Jay Gatsby, Failed Intellectual: F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Trope for Social Stratification” appears in the F. Scott Fitzgerald Review, Nov/Dec. 2017 issue, published by the Penn State University Press; brief book review of Louellyn White’s, Free to be Mohawk: Indigenous Education at the Akwesasne Freedom School, online article published by the Indigenous Policy Journal, 29.2, Fall 2017; “The Road from Cubabi,” published by the Bellevue Literary Review, Department of Medicine, NYU School of Medicine; “The Meta-Politics of American Indian Literature: The Real and the Imagined in its Theories and Classifications,” 2006, published online by the Indigenous Policy Journal. Dianne is a creative writer and her short story, “The Road from Cubabi,” was nominated for the Pushcart Prize in 2008. Dianne’s favorite literary medium is the short story. She believes that short stories carry the polemics of important social issues and are still the best way—aside from poetry and msuic—to explore and contemplate social attitudes. Most of Dianne’s stories reflect the cultural diversity of the Southwestern United States. She believes that the Southwestern heritage is vital to American literary genealogy and to appreciation of cultural variation in the universal human experience.
