Jude Genereaux will be the featured poet at the Dickinson Poetry Series at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Ephraim on October 9th at 7:00 pm. The Dickinson series is named after Emily Dickinson, the famous American poet and includes a performance by a “featured” poet(s) and then an open mic where poets from the audience have the opportunity to present one of their poems.

Former resident of Ellison Bay, Jude Genereaux resides now in the woods of Long Lake, near Hayward, WI. After 25 years of service in county government, Jude retired from her post as Door County’s first County Administrator in 2006. A life changing attendance in a writing workshop in 1994 brought her to meet the love of her life and realize her own role as a writer; she notes that “We write because ? – we can’t stop ourselves.” An award winning poet, Jude’s work has been published by Cross+Roads Press, “Wisconsin Academy of Science, Arts & Letters”, “Hummingbird”, “After Hours” and a solid number of small press and newspapers; she has published three chapbooks of essay & poetry and writes a column for the Rice Lake Chronotype.
