Welcome to the Newtown Bookshop Poetry Group!
Join us on December 14 to hear featured poet, Joanne Leva, read from her latest book, Eve Would Know. Bring a poem and a friend!
An advocate for creative writing and community service, Joanne Leva is the Founder and Executive Director of the Montgomery County Poet Laureate Program (MCPL) and author of the poetry collection Eve Would Know (2017) published by Kelsay Books.
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 email@example.com .
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!
