Marilyn Kallet, longtime director of the creative writing program at the University of Tennessee, has been a wonderful friend and supporter of mine for over two decades now. She's an expert poet, a craftswoman of words and ideas, and a beautiful person in general. I never took one single class from this woman while in college, but I have enjoyed her work, her support and her friendship, and I doubt I merit such. That said, I have tried to provide what little support I have been capable of over the years, and I'm grateful for her appreciation.
Please view this video, which is part interview, part poetry reading excerpts, and consider buying, or at least reading, Marilyn's work. I'm sure you'll be quite pleased you did.
