Featured Poet Barbara Quick

Barbara Quick has a gift of letting us know what she values in her poetry. She’s not interested in grand announcements, so much as a lightness of hand, a dazzle of wisdom, sometimes a mischievous whisper. We always know where she stands with her keen perceptions illuminating the heart of human relationships.

Featured poet Maritza Rivera

Sensuality is one of the main ingredients in poetry. To taste, smell and hear words is what Maritza does  so beautifully. At this time in history we are looking for life without artificial intelligence, and we turn to poetry, where the human heart is stored. Rivera leads us there so that amidst the tumult of the day we are, thankfully, distracted by Good. Poems do not blaze a trail; they simmer to warm the path we follow toward what we can cherish between us.

Featured poet E. Ethelbert Miller

Ethelbert Miller has served poetry for more than 40 years,making this art play a vital role in our lives. He's picked up society's burdens, and changed them to archetypal songs so that the larger point is always better understood. Poetry shows rather than persuades and in this way Miller harmonizes social justice and story. Change to the good is a slow road but Miller walks it daily with evolving messages, clear articulation and good narrative structure. His affections and his strong intentions are in his writing.

Featured Poet Indran Amirthanayagam

Poetry can be a prayer. Amirthanayagam lives and works in Haiti where he sees much to pray for. Poetry can be a wish upon a star for our betterment, but better still, words can be "an Agenda." Today's poet shows a force of character in clear elegant lines that respect space and decorum on the page. Beneath the couplets there is a strong will, anger, weariness, and a powerful cry. Indran knows better than to scream his song.  To get the truth he simply sings.  These are plain words from a pure heart.  And as J.F. Kennedy said "When power corrupts, poetry cleanses."

Featured Poet Laura Orem

Political poetry can be a rant, a howl, or a moan from under the oppressed rock: Or it can be POETRY. Laura Orem gives us humor and wisdom and meaning with the real stuff. She uses the lexicon of poetics itself to confront those who would destroy creativity. How we make Meaning  is an important as the meaning we make, and there's nothing wrong with style, cadence, crisp cutting edge confidence. By the way, you'd have to know poetry to write this poem. You'd also have to be awake in the world, and be the coolest nerd at the popular kids table.  - Grace Cavalieri

Featured Poet Ann Bracken

Some poets write to be loved; some write to be admired, others to make amends. Ann Bracken writes to find the truth in herself, and then the courage to say it. That she connects to the words so simply and powerfully becomes what we call beauty. How do we learn to let language tell the story. Some poets chase the melody; others hold the line. Ann finds the vulnerable and then dazzles us with it.
