Kumin, Maxine - still image [media]

Kumin, Maxine - still image [media]

Early on in life, Maxine Kumin discovered the difficulties inherent in being a woman and a writer: "It was commonplace to be told by an editor that he’d like to publish more of my poems, but he’d already published one by a woman that month." She persevered, and American literature is the richer for it.

Institution: Sylvia Edwards, Longview Community College
