Fran Ostasiewski is a former treasurer and a member of the board of the Writers’ Group of the Triad. He is a native of Connecticut with a degree in economics. He became a regular participant in the poetry group of WGOT during the past year. He won first place in the Haiku/Senryu category and honorable mention in the Arizona State Poetry Society’s 36th annual contest. His own childhood provided both interest and material for children’s poetry, which remains his favorite. However, through the writers’ group, and instruction at Guilford College, his writing focus has expanded from the writing of children’s poetry to include haiku and free verse forms. Other interests include scuba diving, golf, symphony, theater, and his granddaughter Ashlyn.
