Bio

Kit McCallum was born in London, Ontario, Canada in 1963. Her interest in poetry and creative writing was fueled at a young age by her grandfather, who was a delightful storyteller. She began writing poetry herself, at about the age of 10 and continued to write as a hobby during and after her school years. She graduated from college and has worked within the energy sector, as president and co-owner of her own business since 1992.

As a creative outlet beyond the corporate world, McCallum joined Passions in Poetry in 1999. Shortly thereafter, she joined the associated PiPTalk Forums and subsequently became an administrator for the highly active forums. Her interaction at the site, along with a renewed interest in studying the more particular details regarding meter and rhyme, allowed McCallum an avenue to further develop the structure and form in her later writings.

Married and with no children, McCallum’s work often explores the challenges and lessons of daily life. Some of her work has been published in newsletters, magazines, a short film, and a multi-level advertising campaign through the J. Walter Thompson advertising agency. Several of her poems were additionally published in a series of anthologies, including Voices on the Web, Visions on the Web and Reflections on the Web), by netpoets.com 2001-2003.
