  • Susanna Rich



SUGAR LOAF Northeast College of Poetry presents "Slapped with Lightning: Punctuation and Poetry," a writing workshop with Susanna Rich.

Though punctuation may seem a routine matter, in poetry all elements are significant in the construction of the whole, and punctuation may be a critical clue to reading aloud and to meaning. Rich's title suggests the potential for drama and excitement she finds in the subject.

Rich is a 2009 Mid-America Emmy nominee, author of two Finishing Line Press poetry collections, a Pushcart Prize nominee, the winner of the 20th Century America and 21st Century America Poetry contests of Sensations Magazine and the recipient of the first joint Fulbright Collegium Budapest Fellowship in Creative Writing. Rich is a professor of English and a recipient of the Presidential Excellence Award for Distinguished Teaching at Kean University in New Jersey.

Poetry reading
Following the writing workshop, Poetry on the Loose presents Morton Rich. Morton Rich will give a reading of his work, with an open reading to follow.
