Martha Serpas is a poet, a professor in the Creative Writing Program at the University of Houston, an advocate for wetland preservation, and a hospital chaplain. Since 2006, she has served at Tampa General Hospital, where she responds to trauma, end-of-life, and crisis situations, and to more general requests for spiritual support. Her poetry is grounded in her faith and her experiences in Cajun Louisiana. She holds degrees in English and creative writing from Louisiana State, New York University, and the University of Houston, and a Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity School.
Although Harvey has come and gone, many in our community continue to struggle with uncertain physical, temporal, and emotional spaces. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you recover and heal.
