Busy Time

It’s been a very busy time in the past few weeks, which is one reason why I haven’t been posting much.

  • I finished revisions to my textbook A Writer’s Craft: multi-genre creative writing, adding a chapter, an appendix, glossary, and references, among other less major revisions.
  • Sent that to my publisher by my Nov. 30 deadline.
  • I have been editing, proofreading, and laying out 96 pages of Poetry South, which means I’ve had a chance to read some really fine poetry.
  • I nominated 5 of those poems for the Pushcart Prize.
  • I nominated 5 of our MFA students for the AWP Intro Journals Project contest
  • I’ve been sprucing up the websites for Poetry South and Ponder Review.
  • Not to mention the normal end-of-semester work, a little Christmas cheer, and a few things I’m probably forgetting (repressing) right now…

But the semester will be soon over (hard to imagine how), and I ought to get more time to reflect and write on this blog!

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.
