Creative Writing Professor Jerry Williams Quoted in Time Magazine

MMC Creative Writing Professor Jerry Williams, Ph.D., was quoted in a Time magazine profile on Princeton University basketball coach Mitch Henderson.

Henderson, a friend of Dr. Williams, is the only person to amass wins in the NCAA Tournament as both a player and head coach. While most of the article focused on Henderson’s journey through March madness, Dr. Williams made a surprise cameo midway through the article:

Since Henderson’s days working in Princeton’s Firestone Library, he’s remained good friends with his former supervisor, Jerry Williams, now a poet who teaches creative writing at Marymount Manhattan College in New York City. Williams is a big fan of the stout and sculpted Peters.

“His body is almost square,” Williams texted Henderson, summoning his poet’s voice. “Like a wall made of fireplugs.”

The observation could have come directly from Workshop in Writing Poetry, a course Dr. Williams teaches at MMC!
