Wednesday Night Poetry Series

since 1995

August 1st – Amy Holman

Welcome Brooklyn-based poet Amy Holman! Faith will host the night’s reading. 

Amy has taught at many literary and community centers, colleges and universities, writers conferences and festivals, including The Hudson Valley Writers Center, Silver Bay YMCA, Emerson College, NYU, The New School, Spalding University, Bread Loaf Writers Conference, Conversations & Connection, ASJA Annual Conference, and Sotto Voce Poetry Festival. Her newest book, Wrens Fly Through This Opened Window, with poems drawn from varied news pieces, art, and expressions of speech, is united by her “laser gaze, an angle of perspective combining incisive wit and passionate observation.” (The National Poetry Review). She is also the author of four previous poetry chapbooks, including the prize-winning Wait For Me, I’m Gone and a reference book, An Insider’s Guide to Creative Writing Programs, on artist colonies, residencies, grants, fellowships and graduate programs. She also wrote a knitting column for The Huffington Post, and a publishing column for Poets & Writers Magazine. Amy also posts about writing, art, crafts, science, nature, culture, and literature at her blog, Lending Whale and on writing and culture at the group-edited blog, We Who Are About To Die. She has been a guest blogger for The Best American Poetry, 32 Poems, and SideRoad. Her website is www.amyholman.com
