Taking the plunge

For awhile, I’ve been saying I should start a blog to have a more personal presence on the web. So here goes… I plan to use this as a place to write about my life and record ideas. Subjects that might appear are poetry, translation, writing, violin and fiddle music, teaching, parenting, nature, living in Mississippi, growing up in Iowa, and who knows what else. Sometimes I may write about the backstory to poems I’ve published in my two books Time Capsules and Landscapes and Architectures, about the process of writing, or about issues that I hope to turn into a poem or that I’m interested in for other reasons.

I am a poet, translator, and professor of literature and creative writing at Mississippi University for Women, where I direct the Low-Res MFA in Creative Writing, the undergraduate concentration in creative writing, and the Eudora Welty Writers' Symposium. I have published three books of poetry, Barrier Island Suite, Time Capsules, and Landscapes and Architectures, as well as a collection of translations of the Belgian poet Paul Snoek, Hercules, Richelieu, and Nostradamus. I live in Columbus with my wife, Kim Whitehead; son, Aidan; and dog, Aleida.
