Steven Michael Miller


I won a national poetry contest while I was a Freshman in college at Louisiana Tech University. I was moved by the English professors and enjoyed reading Wordsworth, who taught me that everyone is important; William Blake, who inspired me with his wild imagination and concern for the poor; and Emily Dickinson for her conciseness.
