We're excited to have Ethel Rackin join us on February 8 at 6:30pm as our featured poet! Read Ethel's upcoming interview at lynnfanok.weebly.com. Bring a poem and a friend. We hope to see you there!
Ethel Rackin is the author of The Forever Notes (Parlor Press, 2013); Go On (Parlor Press, 2016), a National Jewish Book Award Finalist; and a limited-edition chapbook, Evening (Furniture Press, 2017). Her work has appeared in journals such as The American Poetry Review, Colorado Review, Columbia Poetry Review, Jacket2, Kenyon Review, Verse Daily, and Volt. She is an associate professor at Bucks County Community College, where she co-directs the Wordsmiths Reading Series and the Poet Laureate Program with Christopher Bursk.
The first half of the monthly meeting is devoted to a reading by a featured poet from the group or by a published poet. The second half hour allows open mike time for group members to share a few poems they've written, or they may choose to read poems written by their favorite poets. In the future, we may include poetry workshops to the group's activities. If you are interested in sharing a collection of poems, please email Lynn at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The meeting will be facilitated by Lynn Fanok, who has written a collection of poems about her experiences as a survivor’s daughter examining her family, memory, and history. Her poetry has appeared in Burnt Bridge and other journals. Lynn holds degrees in English from The Pennsylvania State University and Arcadia University. You'll find some of her poetry at lynnfanok.weebly.com.
All are invited and welcome to join us!
