It is my pleasure to introduce our judge for Springtime 2012 IBPC, the sharp, smart, and remarkable Shara McCallum, director of the Stadler Center for Poetry at Bucknell University, where she also teaches creative writing and literature. We have poet Laurie Byro to thank for making the connection and arrangements for her to judge and become an important part of us. As you''ll find in the links, and I was tempted to start with the videos, Shara received the 2011 National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship for Poetry, and has also been awarded the Tennessee Individual Artist Grant in Literature, a Barbara Deming Memorial Fund grant, and the 1998 Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize. Originally from Jamaica, she sees herself "as a Caribbean writer. Also a Jamaican writer, an American writer, an African American writer, a West Indian writer, a woman writer." And as I write, she is already reading our poems for the April contest. (Thank you, Shara!) Now we can read hers! Go here for the links:
