there's that "real" person thing again! you ARE a real expert, you wrote the thing they found when they googled, after all, so you are a "known name" in the field of this poet, which makes you realer than real. they don't want a whole book report, they've alrady got the book, they want a flap-copy like intro to catch the eye is all. you are very real and this is quite doable, badg. if you were dooce, or somybody, you think you would not write 500 words that would extend your name? no, you'd write it write away and add to your dooceness. you can write this in your sleep! and it will be good!

There are history scholars in this very area who are experts!

I read a bunch of books and took some notes... I would say I have the equivalent of a college level upper division course in the subject.

On the other other other hand, I am definitely an expert on beaver.

but remember, they don't necessarily need an expert, maybe they just need somebody visible.

Do it! Your name in print is a good thing, being asked to contribute your golden words is a good thing.

What e said. You might not be an "expert," but you are a recognized authority ... recognized by them, at least.

If you do decide not to write the intro, do it on the basis real considerations like your other commitments, not because of any imposter-syndrome feelings you might have.

My uncle's music school in San Francisco, Sunset Academy of Music. He's a really great guitar teacher for adults or kids, a good listener with a sense of humor and intuitive understanding of teaching.
