tonight: Becky Breed and Lucy Adkins
with their new book
Writing in Community:Say Goodbye to Writer's Block and Transform Your Life
Becky (pictured on left), a veteran educator, poet, and essayist, attributes the support of her writing community for inspiring her to craft the most honest and authentic writing of her life. She has an Ed.D. in Education, and in addition to helping develop a series of creativity workshops for women on the prairie, has taught at the university level, and served as principal at an alternative high school. Her passions involve helping the marginalized–young people, women, minorities–find their voices and articulate new visions of the future.
Lucy (pictured on right) grew up in rural Nebraska, attended country schools, and received her degree from Auburn University in Alabama. Her poetry has been published in various journals and magazines which include Rhino, Northeast, South Dakota Review, Concho River Review, and the anthologies Woven on the Wind, Times of Sorrow/Times of Grace, Crazy Woman Creek, and the Poets Against the War anthology. Her chapbook, One Life Shining: Addie Finch, Farmwife, was published in 2007 by Pudding House Press.see: http://writeincommunity.com/
