“Poetry and Process”- Free Zoom presentation by Bedford poet Joyce Peseroff

February 21, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Local poet, Joyce Peseroff, will read from her sixth book of poems, Petition, published in November by Carnegie Mellon University Press.  She will also discuss her writing process in general, the specific ways in which certain poems were written, and the vital support a decades-long writing group has offered her.

Ms. Peseroff founded and directed the Creative Writing MFA Program at UMass Boston, where she taught for 17 years.  Her honors include grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artists Foundation as well as a Pushcart Prize.  Ms. Peseroff’s fifth book of poems, Know Thyself, was named a “must-read” by the 2016 Massachusetts Book Award.

Come join us for this engaging session!   All are welcome!
