poet, teacher, writer
Welcome to my own small part of the internet. I am Kendall Dunkelberg, a poet, teacher, cook, and geek. For over a decade, since July 24, 2009, this has been where I’ve written about creative writing, teaching, tech issues, recipes, dogs, music, and anything else I had on my mind. Now that I’m changing to a more modern theme to make the focus of the site more on my books, I am working on this static home page. Look for other changes to the content on this page and other pages as I make that transition.
When not writing poetry, I am a Professor of English at Mississippi University for Women, where I direct the low-residency MFA program in Creative Writing and department chair of Languages, Literature, and Philosophy. I also direct the Eudora Welty Writers’ Symposium and am editor of Poetry South and help with Ponder Review, the MFA program’s two literary magazines.
I often teach Intro to Creative Writing, Poetry Workshop, Writing for New Media, Translation Workshop, Feminist Poetry, Early Women Writers, and World Literature. In my blog, I frequently post in the categories for Writing, Education, and MFA applictions.
