Sunset Dreams by Matthew Nies(’13)

Matthew Nies, a 2013 University of Jamestown graduate with degrees in Communication and Spanish, has had a book of his poetry published by Wifp and Stock Publishers. The book, entitled “Sunset Dreams,” highlights some of Matthew’s life experiences including his “North Dakota roots, a job on Capitol Hill, and forming a new family.” Additionally, Matthew’s experiences at UJ led him to an internship with ABC News Magazines in New York, where he worked with producers and support staff at 20/20 and Primetime: What Would You Do?, among other duties. He has also served as the Deputy Press Secretary/Digital Media Director in a United States Senator’s office in Washington, D.C. He left that position to be at home with his family and to focus on writing.

While at the University of Jamestown, Matthew studied writing under North Dakota Poet Laureate Larry Woiwode. He was also the Managing Editor and Host of “Knightwatch,” as well as News Director; and participated in theatre productions at the Reiland Fine Arts Center. His poetry has appeared in UJ’s Plainsong, ND Humanities’ On Second Thought Magazine, and SDSU’s Oakwood.
