Poet to teach workshop March 31Colette Inez, Columbia University writing scholar and poet, will present "Find the Sound of Music in Your Poetry" as part of the Visiting Author's Workshop Program at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 31, on the lower level of Nestor Hall. At 4 p.m., she will be at the Discovery Exchange for a book signing.
Inez is the author of eight poetry collections including the award-winning The Woman Who Loved Worms (Doubleday & Co., 1972, reissued by Carnegie Mellon University Press, 1992). She has also published Family Life, 1988, and Getting Under Way: New & Selected Poetry, 1993, both from Story Line Press. Her most recent collection, Clemency, came out in 1998 (Carnegie Mellon University Press) and her memoir, The Secret of M. Dulong, was published by the University of Wisconsin Press in 2004.
As the illegitimate daughter of a priest and a scholar, within 10 days of her birth Inez was placed in a Catholic orphanage, where she suffered deprivation. She learned harsher lessons when sent to live with alcoholic and abusive foster parents in the United States at the age of eight. In her remarkable poetry, Inez has explored this story with wit, haunting feeling, and memorable storytelling. In her poetry Inez turned to art, nature, cultures far different from her own, and the love of her husband--all of which, in addition to the story of her parents, make up the themes of her poetry.
