Susan T. Moss will take the Dickinson Poetry Series stage at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Ephraim on Wednesday, March 11th at 7:00 p.m.

Susan’s poetry has appeared in numerous publications including Siftings From The Clearing, Soundings Door County in Poetry, Wisconsin Poets’ Calendar, Vermont Literary Review, After Hours, Kerf, Steam Ticket, Caduceus among others as well as on radio and cable television.  She was granted a month-long residency at the Vermont Studio Center and received two Illinois Humanities fellowships.  She is working on a third book of poetry and has two published chapbooks, Keep Moving ‘til The Music Stops published by Lily Pool/Swamp Press, and In From The Dark from Antrim House Press. Presently, Susan is serving a fourth term as Illinois State Poetry Society president and holds a Master of Arts degree from Middlebury College Bread Loaf School of English.

With the belief that anything can evoke a poem, Susan’s work is informed by observations of everyday events, personal history, travel, nature and the juxtaposition of time and place, past and present. Her effort to hold the moment in order to better decipher it and prevent it from disappearing reflects gratitude for fleeting experiences reflected in vivid narrative. Each poem speaks to the reader in universal language that invites personal reflection and response to our human condition.
