Tuesday, August 28, and Thursday, August 30, there will be brief parent meetings at the start of orchestra and the play-in to elect this year’s officers and vote on this year’s fees. They should last about 15 minutes, so please try to be there for at least one of the meetings!
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.
