Poetry reading with Robert Crawford
Thursday, September 5, 2019, 7 pm Etz Hayim Synagogue, "I Asked for Wonder"
Abraham Joshua Heschel wrote, "Never once in my life did I ask God for success or wisdom or power or fame. I asked for wonder, and he gave it to me." As we approach the High Holidays--the "Days of Awe"--Robert Crawford, Midge Goldberg, and Alfred Nicol will explore the role of wonder and awe in their poetry. All three poets are recipients of the Richard Wilbur Poetry Award for their books, Nicol for Winter Light in 2004, Crawford for The Empty Chair in 2011, and Goldberg for Snowman's Code in 2015. Robert Crawford is currently the poet laureate of Derry, N.H. The reading by the three poets will be followed by an open mike.
Friday, June 14 - Sunday June 16, 2019, Frost Farm Poetry Conference, Derry, N.H.
Instructor, Introduction to Meter and Rhyme
I have taught Introduction to Poetry and Advanced Poetry Writing at various colleges in the area, including Chester College, New Hampshire Institute of Art, and Northern Essex Community College.
I am also available to give a talk on women poets of the White Mountains. New England women poets have been visiting, living in, and writing about the White Mountains for almost two hundred years, both being influenced by and influencing the landscape. I examine poems by Lydia Sigourney, Edna Dean Proctor, Lucy Larcom, Jane Kenyon, and others.
I received an M.F.A. in Poetry from the University of New Hampshire in 2006, the first MFA awarded by that institution.
