Wednesday Night Poetry Series

since 1995

September 26th – Neil Silberblatt

Neil Silberblatt – Neil has been writing poetry since his college days at Cornell, inspired by a former English teacher at Stuyvesant High School (Frank McCourt).  Neil recently returned to poetry writing and a collection of his poems – entitled So Far, So Good – has been published by www.lulu.com.  Two of Neil’s poems – Stand Your Ground and After the Tempest – have been selected for the Fall 2012 issue of Verse Wisconsin, an online and print literary journal.  Neil has organized (and participated in) several local literary readings, including an Afternoon of Poetry & Jazz at the Washington Art Association this past August; an Afternoon of Poetry & Music at The Sherman Playhouse (scheduled for September 30); Voices of Poetry at the Wooster School (scheduled for November 4); and  the first “open reading” by poets and writers at Danbury Library (scheduled for October 21) entitled “From Our Hands to Your Ears.”  He is also attempting to organize other poetry events at other venues in Litchfield and northern Fairfield Counties.  Neil will soon be applying for the MFA program at New York University and Columbia University – in the hope of someday teaching others the joys (and perils) of writing.
