FCEA Member Marissa Glover’s first full-length poetry collection Let Go of the Hands You Hold was just published by Mercer University Press!
Marissa joined FCEA in 2015 as a way to become more involved with people in the English discipline. The annual conference is one of her favorite conferences every year – she learns a lot about her profession and enjoys the time spent with old and new friends. She served three years as Secretary of the FCEA Board, and this position (along with her membership) helped her discover the national organization, College English Association. All of these friendships and memberships have furthered her career as a teacher, scholar, and writer.
Recently named a 2020 Best of the Net Finalist, Marissa Glover teaches writing, humanities, and public speaking courses at Saint Leo University. Before academia, Marissa worked as a writer and editor for more than fifteen years. She is currently co-editor of Orange Blossom Review and a senior editor at The Lascaux Review, and her own work has been widely published in various journals and anthologies.
