Teresa Miller is author of the memoir, Means of Transit, and the novels, Remnants of Glory and Family Correspondence. In 1994 she founded the Oklahoma Center for Poets and Writers, based at Oklahoma State University–Tulsa, where she taught advanced fiction and regional literature. Over the years, the Center hosted many of the country’s leading authors, including Pat Conroy, Frank McCourt, and hundreds of others through the Center’s signature event, the Celebration of Books. Teresa also hosted and executive produced the television series Writing Out Loud, a staple on OETA, Oklahoma’s PBS affiliate, for over fifteen years. The show, which featured over 20 Pulitzer winners, was known for its in depth interviews with writers. Teresa and her work have been featured on NPR’s The Diane Rehm show and C-SPAN.
Miller retired from the Center with the title Executive Director Emerita and now works as a full time writer. Recently, she has coedited the nonprofit anthology, Love Can Be, and has a new essay in that collection as well one in Our Prince of Scribes—Writers Remember Pat Conroy. Her new novel, Provenance, will be released in 2019.
About Love Can Be: Literary Collection About Our Animals
“Love can be, and sure enough is, moving in all things, in all places, in all forms of life at the same snap of your finger.”—Woody Guthrie
Oklahoma native Woody Guthrie said it first and best. This new anthology of poems and prose, Love Can Be: A Literary Collection About Our Animals, is proof of what love can be, as thirty acclaimed authors join together to champion life in all its forms. This is their gift to the world, not just the artistry of their words, but their vision of an extended community that includes cats, birds, frogs, butterflies, bears, dogs, raccoons, horses—a full-out menagerie of being that enriches us all.
