About Callie Smith
I have PhD in English from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. My primary research is centered around non-human animals and poetry. I am also a museum educator at the Hilliard Art Museum; an editor at Bear Review, a Kansas City-based poetry magazine; a co-host of Gold Microphone, a podcast about 80s Infocom computer games; and a volunteer with the Acadiana Native Plant Project, a local environmental nonprofit. My three rescue cats, Moxie, Lux, and Lemur are my dear friends and co-writers.
