We had our annual Halloween play-in a week early, since the Starkvillle Symphony performs and Miss Diane and Miss Trudy have rehearsals this week. Don’t miss their performance, Friday, October 28, at 7:30 p.m. in Lee Hall Auditorium, Mississippi State University!
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.
