I am honored to read with Linda Haviland Conte and Timothy Gager in the New Poetry series for writers with new books. If you are short on time, my 15 minute reading begins around 30 minutes into the recording. However, I hope that you will have time to listen to the whole reading and the Q&A that follows.
It was a very special and memorable night for me to read with Philip Schultz, my poetry mentor and friend. Enjoy! Thank you Christie Max Williams for being such a wonderful host.
What a great night! In celebration of five years of publishing poetry for the heart, Liquid Light Press presented Liquid Light Press poets Megan E. Freeman, Douglas Cole, Wayne A. Glibert, and Eleanor Kedney.
Introduction to my reading: "For nine years Eleanor Kedney has been inspiring aspiring writers to go deeper, give more, dare greatly. A long time student in the New York Master Class, Eleanor sharpened her formidable skills as a poet and teacher under the tutelage of Writer's Studio founder Philip Schultz. Eleanor has a remarkable ability to make you take a second look at the everyday, to show you the gruesome, gorgeous, imperfect beauty of the world, to remind us that 'there is, after all, an afternoon sun.'
