About the Editors

Marilyn Robitaille

In addition to reaching a milestone of forty+ years of marriage to Charlie Robitaille, Marilyn published Not by Design: Fifty Poems and Images (2018 Romar Press), an anthology of her poetry with watercolor and collage illustrations. Her work was most recently published in Texas Weather: An Anthology of Poetry, Short Fiction, and Nonfiction: The Power and Beauty of Weather in the Lone Star State (Lamar University Literary Press). She is founding co-editor of Langdon Review of the Arts in Texas. She has co-managed Anthology: A Student Forum for Prose, Poetry, and the Visual Arts, Tarleton State University’s student arts and literary magazine since its inception 26 years ago. With creative works published in a number of national and state publications, Marilyn’s current research interests have turned to specialized London productions of eighteenth-century plays by women. She also writes a weekly travel column on the popular blog Beneath the Surface News. Her interest in global travel stems from the many years she spent as Director of International Programs and Study Abroad, an administrative position that allowed her to facilitate the acculturation process of international students and to develop study abroad opportunities across multiple disciplines and Colleges. Since returning to full-time teaching, she is working on an anthology of poems about wine and a mass market book about "perfect" dates. She has two successful grown children (one of them married to a recently graduated Ph.D.), four brilliant grandchildren, and a husband of infinite patience.
