Nicholas Karavatos is an American poet currently living and working near Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
Karavatos was a manual worker by day and a poet-musician by night before going into debt to complete his formal education. Karavatos is a graduate of Humboldt State University in Arcata and New College of California's Poetics Program in San Francisco. He taught general studies at a small private college in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman from 2001 to 2006. Since 2006 he has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of English at the American University of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates where he teaches literature and writing.
His recent book is titled No Asylum (Amendment Nine, 2009). Beat legend David Meltzer writes on the back cover: “Nicholas Karavatos is a poet of great range and clarity. This book is an amazing collectanea of smart sharp political poetry in tandem with astute and tender love lyrics. All of it voiced with an impressive singularity.”
