Description

Featuring poets Terry Thaxton and Gabby Keusch.

Gabriele Pope writes under her maiden name, Gabriele Keusch ~ "GK".
She is a poet, a Doula, creatress and witness of life. Wide-eyed with passion and driven. She writes, “A Cancerian ocean, sharing my depths with pen and paper. Though a transplant, the swampy soils of Florida are where my roots flourish and have found their home. I write my feelings… my heart is served in these words on a platter for you to become full off of. I hope they fill you.”

Terry Ann Thaxton, 5th generation Floridian (born and raised in Sarasota), is the author of 3 books of poetry: Getaway Girl, The Terrible Wife (2014 Florida Book Award, Bronze Medal), and Mud Song (2017 T.S. Eliot Poetry Prize). She has published poetry and essays in national and international journals, and received The Missouri Review Editor’s Prize for Essay in 2012. Her book Creative Writing in the Community: A Guide is based on her 15 years of experience teaching poetry and storytelling to marginalized children, youth, and adults throughout central Florida. She is a professor of English at UCF where she also directs the MFA Program.
