The Guilford Poets Guild presents three poets from their own membership (Gwen Gunn, Margaret Iacobellis, and Audrey Fitting) for their Second Thursday Poetry Series event on Thursday, November 13, 7 p.m. at the Greene Art Gallery, 29 Whitfield in Guilford. The reading will be preceded by an open mic from 7 to 7:30 p.m.
Gwen Gunn has had poems published in Connecticut Poets at Work, The Guilford Anthology, Connecticut River Review, Fresh Ink, and Caduceus. She was an assistant editor at Sachem Publishing and co-edited the poetry magazine Embers. She has participated in poetry readings in Connecticut and New York. Her latest chapbook, “Tastes,” will be available at the reading.
One of the original members of the Thimble Island Poets, Margaret Iacobellis has been a member of the Guilford Poets Guild and the CT Poetry Society since 1999. Currently working on her fourth book of poetry, Margaret has written about history, relationships, families and the wonders of ocean-viewing, whether it be from the eyes of early settlers first viewing our rock-bound coast or from the vantage point of Floridian sun-worshippers. Her poems have been published in The Guilford Anthology, Connecticut River Review, Long River Run, Caduceus, New River Poets and Connecticut River Review. She is currently working on a collection entitled “Salt Water Fantasies.”
Audrey Fitting credits her membership in the Guilford Poets Guild as her major source of encouragement. Her poems have appeared in The Guilford Anthology, Caduceus, Martha’s Vineyard News, and Connecticut Review. In 2013 she published a collection of her poems, copies of which she will bring to the reading.
The reading is free and open to the public. Refreshments are served. For more information call 453-8836.
