Linda Dousay is an Administrative Associate at Lamar University. She began writing in the fifth grade. Over the next 10 years, she played with the art while her friends shaped the world of southern rock. Years later, when a freshman composition instructor taught her to study poets' lives, she recognized the connection between contemporary music and classic poetry. As creative writing professors encouraged her to continue writing, focusing on form, she began winning awards. While Ms. Dousay does not expect to shape worlds, she is honored to be included in the 2007 edition of Marquis's Who's Who of American Women.
