Another alum success: new book
As I’ve seen from 20+ years of teaching speechwriting seminars, good speechwriters can write more than “just speeches”. My special congratulations go to Laurel Kallen, whose book of poetry (The Forms of Discomfort) will be published in August.
Laurel’s poetry has earned this extraordinary praise:
“Kallen is a contemplative poet whose range is exhilaratingly wide and whose eyes are open to the transience of empirical and spiritual experience, which she captures vividly with both philosophical calm and graceful rapture. Her poems are simultaneously delicate and robust as she delves deeply and freshly into universal questions about the worlds around her and her place in them.” — Yerra Sugarman, winner of the 2005 PEN/Joyce Osterweil Poetry Award for Forms of Gone.
