Poets for Peace

Archived from 2012:

Join “Poets for Peace” at the 13th annual Peace Fair. Corie Feiner, current Bucks County Poet Laureate, will be the featured reader and poets of all ages are invited and encouraged to read their own poems and/or poems from the considerable canon of “Peace Poetry.”

This year’s poetry reading is organized by Bucks County poet David Mook. The poetry reading will begin at 11:00, and the amount of time given to each reader will depend on the number of poets who wish to read. All readers will be welcomed, and it is helpful to have an idea in advance how many poets wish to read.

A new feature will be the “Peace Poem Clothesline.”  Members of the public are invited to submit peace-related poetry for display or to peruse and read the selections on their own

Corie Feiner is the 2011 Bucks County Poet Laureate and the author of the poetry collection Radishes into Roses (Linear Arts Press). Her work has been published in journals such as Calyx, Kalliope, The Cortland Review, Zeek, Runes, The Jewish Review, and Natural Bridge. Her poem “Subway Pastoral” won the 2007 Vent Your Inspiration Poetry Contest, and she is a two-time Pushcart Prize nominee. Her first children's book, Who Was Born at Home? was released in September by Four Steps Press.

Feiner is also an internationally known performance poet who has been featured at venues such as the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, the 92nd Street Y, The Joyce Theatre, and Tel Aviv University. She has also taught at New York University and Manhattanville College, and is a longtime teaching-artist for organizations such as Teachers & Writers Collaborative, Poets & Writers, and Poets House.
