Karla Linn Merrifield
There are several poetry readings this week featuring local poets. Tonight, Karla Linn Merrifield and Catherine Faurot (a fellow Bennington alum) will be reading at Writers & Books for the Genesee Reading Series, 7:30 pm.
Thursday, Just Poets will hold a reading from their annual anthology, Le Mot Juste, at the Pittsford Library (second floor) at 7:00 pm. An open mic will follow.
Saturday, Patricia Roth Schwartz will be reading at Books, Etc. in Macedon at 2:00 pm. Pat has asked a few of her friends (I am among them) to read a couple of poems as well.
I’d also like to point you to a list of the top 25 writers of faith compiled by the editors of Image. Here’s a link http://imagejournal.org/page/blog/the-iimagei-top-25-contemporary-writers-of-faith-list. Post a comment if you agree/disagree with their selections.
My poem “Girl with Laurel” appears in the latest issue of Blueline, published by SUNY Potsdam. Joining me in issue XXX are fine poets M.J. Iuppa, Adam Wilcox, and Karla Linn Merrifield. As of this writing, the new issue is not listed on the Blueline web site. Check back with the site for ordering details.
