About the Author
Theresa Welford grew up just outside Savannah, Georgia, in a small working-class town called Port Wentworth. She has degrees in English from Armstrong State College (BA), the University of Georgia (MA), and the University of Essex (PhD). She has taught at Georgia Southern University since 1987. She and her husband Mark live in a small house out in the boonies, off a dirt lane, behind a cotton field, in the woods, with their five cats and four dogs, plus (currently) a foster cat and a foster dog. A long-time vegetarian for ethical reasons, Theresa volunteers with two local animal rescue groups, she also writes a weekly blog, focusing almost entirely on animal-related subjects, for the Statesboro Herald Community website. Welford has published poems in journals including Karamu, Thalia: Studies in Literary Humor, Atlanta Review, Chiron Review, Dickinson Review, Rhino, and New Mexico Humanities Review. She has also published several articles. One article discussing the possible connections between a poem by Ezra Pound and one by Thomas Wyatt appears in Paideuma: A Journal of Pound Studies; another article, about re-animating students' interest in poetry, appears in Florida English Journal; and another one, which combines memoir with ideas about being a working-class person in an academic world, appears in Those Winter Sundays: Female Academics and Their Working-Class Parents. Her most recent article, Code-Meshing and Creative Assignments: How Students Can Stop Worrying and Learn to Write Like Da Bomb, will appear in Code Meshing as World English: Policy, Pedagogy, Performance, edited by Vershawn Ashanti Young and Aja Martinez.
