Join Inkwood Books for its May Poetry Night on Friday, May 19, at 7:30 p.m. Guests will include poets Lynn Levin and Bruce Niedt and an open mic will follow.
Niedt is a retired “beneficent bureaucrat,” as he describes it, whose poetry has been published in both online and print journals, including Rattle and Writer’s Digest. The Cherry Hill resident’s work has appeared in the anthologies Best of the Barefoot Muse, Poem Your Heart Out, and, most recently, Poetry for Ukraine.
Niedt’s two most recent books of poetry are his first full-length collection, The Bungalow of Colorful Aging, from Kelsay Books, and his eighth chapbook (a booklet of poems or fiction), Knit Our Broken Bones. He is the father of four and grandfather of three.
Levin is a poet and creator of House Parties, her debut collection of short fiction. She is also the author of the poetry collections The Minor Virtues and Miss Plastique. Her previous books include Poems for the Writing: Prompts for Poets (as co-author) and a translation from the Spanish Birds on the Kiswar Tree poems by Odi Gonzales.
Levin’s poems, short stories, and essays appear widely. She teaches writing and literature at Drexel University and lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Her website is lynnlevinpoet.com.
