English Professor and Alumna Caki Wilkinson Is Poetry Daily’s Featured Poet

“Smoke and Mirrors” by Caki Wilkinson, assistant professor of English at Rhodes and a 2003 Rhodes alumna, is featured today (July 24) on Poetry Daily.

Wilkinson began writing poems at a young age and says she choose to attend Rhodes as a student because of the creative writing aspect of the college’s English program.

Wilkinson does research on different topics to use as the basis for poems and said in a Faces of Rhodes interview, “I think the things that interest me the most in poems are things that don’t seem poetic. Subjects that you wouldn’t think would be in a poem, I try to work that into a poem somehow.”
