Event description

Description

Featured poets are Joyce Peseroff, Deirdre Callanan and Martin Tucker.

Joyce Peseroff's fifth book of poems, Know Thyself, was designated a "must read" by the 2016 Massachusetts Book Award. She has been managing editor and poetry editor of Ploughshares, and edited Simply Lasting: Writers on Jane Kenyon, Robert Bly: When Sleepers Awake, and The Ploughshares Poetry Reader. Her recent poems and reviews appear in New Ohio Review, Plume, and on the website The Woven Tale Press. She directed UMass Boston's MFA Program in its first four years, and currently blogs on writing and literature at joycepeseroff.com.

Deirdre Grace Callanan, a poet, journalist, and photographer, divides her time between Sarasota County and Cape Cod. For a dozen years she has served on the writing faculty of the Washington Center for Psychoanalysis, and for the past six summers she has co-led a week-long writing retreat for therapists at her home in West Harwich, Massachusetts. Deirdre's poetry collection, Water~Dreaming, is forthcoming from Bass River Press in spring, 2018. Active in two decades-long writing groups, she's happiest when either writing or responding to others' work.

Martin Tucker bio coming soon.
