Former Indiana Poet Laureate Receives New Accolade

It's been just over three months since IPFW's George Kalamaras ended his two year reign as Indiana's Poet Laureate.

Now he's back in the limelight, as recipient of the university's first-ever "Featured Faculty for Excellence in Engagement  Award."

In honor of National Poetry Month, WBOI's Julia Meek decided to meet with the poet to discuss the inroads he's traveled, and the insights he's gathered along this journey.

A Fort Wayne native, Julia is a radio host, graphic artist, and community volunteer, who has contributed to NIPR both on- and off-air for forty years. Besides being WBOI's arts & culture reporter, she currently co-produces and hosts Folktales and Meet the Music.
