This past weekend I attended the On the Brink literary conference at Jacksonville State University. Despite a rare snowfall which kept some of the invited authors from getting to Jacksonville, this small conference was well-attended and very enjoyable. The Center for Public Television crew and host Don Noble filmed three Bookmark episodes that will be shown this summer. Bookmark Producer Wendy Reed took this nighttime photo of the JSU campus.

- I’m a writer, editor, and teacher, and I enjoy connecting with readers and other writers. I grew up in Arkansas and am a long-time resident of Alabama, and in November 2017 I was commissioned Alabama Poet Laureate, for a four-year term. My latest book is a poetry chapbook, "Borrowed Light," and my current writing project is a biography of the writer Sara Mayfield. I call this blog "A Map of the World" because I think that, as writers, we each map our own lives, imaginations, and world. Welcome to my particular map!
