Cellar Door, a space for new writing

Cellar Door is monthly workshop facilitated by resident artist Tamara Zbrizher and open to all people, all levels, that will focus on honing a particular element of craft.  In the the first hour we will tackle a particular element of craft and the second hour of the evening program will be devoted to a critique session. The critique session will follow the format of a formal workshop, where the students will be asked to bring one piece to be critiqued by their peers and the workshop leader. This is voluntary, but feel it is a helpful tool and space for those writers who don’t have access to professional or peer review. Please bring 5 copies of the work you wish to have critiqued.

$5 suggested donation.

The Platform

The Platform, May 1st featuring New Jersey's own, KATHY KREMINS. Kathy is a retired public school teacher and coach, adjunct professor, poet, and author. Her poems are steeped in the Irish-Catholic immigrant experience of her childhood in Newark, NJ. A paradoxical celebration of living at the hard edges and in the curve of things, her poems are tender, funny, sad, joyous, and provocative, filled with dogs, birds, the occasional cat, maps, scars, waves, the women and men she has loved, and the logical families they have created. Her poems have appeared in The Paterson Literary Review and other publications. She is the author of The Ethics of Reading: The Broken Beauties of Toni Morrison, Arundhati Roy, and Nawal el Sadaawi and contributor to Too Smart to be Sentimental: Contemporary Irish American Women Writers.

Featured reader: Mary Brancaccio. Mary is a teacher and a published poet.

Her chapbook, Mistress of Buttons and Keys, was a Minerva Rising finalist. She currently teaches English at Livingston High School. Brancaccio is completing revisions to her full-length poetry manuscript, Love’s Fierce Geometry, which addresses the complexity women face in their roles as lovers, wives, mothers and daughters. Her passions include raising awareness about the proliferation of plastic waste, threats of climate change, and inequities in education, justice and living standards. Her teaching is driven by a belief in the necessity for ordinary people to actively work for change in both their communities and in the wider world.
