Jude Marr received their PhD from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2019, an MFA in Creative Writing from Georgia College in 2014, and a Scottish MA in English Language and Literature from the University of St. Andrews in 1983. In addition to their professional focus on the theory and practice of writing center pedagogy, Dr. Marr is a poet. Their chapbook, Breakfast for the Birds, came out in 2017, and their first full-length manuscript, Bird on Barbed Wire, was a semi-finalist for the 2019 Word Works’ Washington Prize. The search for a publisher continues. Marr’s poetry has also appeared in The Cortland Review, Cherry Tree, and Split This Rock, among many other journals. Other interrelated interests include translation, the poetry of protest, and the pursuit of truth through a process of bricolage.
