We will be welcoming Diana Loercher Pazicky on Jan 10th at 6:30pm as the featured poet.
Diana Loercher Pazicky is a former English professor at Temple University and the author of a book, Cultural Orphans in America, based on her dissertation. Prior to receiving her doctorate, she was a full-time Staff Correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor in Boston and New York. Having recently retired, she has been reveling in the freedom and opportunity to write. She lives in Bucks County, PA with her husband, dog, and cat and is indebted to Chris Bursk and his poetry workshop at Bucks County Community College for their support and inspiration. She attempts in her poetry to incorporate a twist, an element of the unexpected, that provokes in the reader curiosity and a shift in perception. Her poems have been published in journals throughout the Pennsylvania/New Jersey area.
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!
