Phil HansotiaPhil Hansotia will share his travel poetry as the Dickinson featured reader on Wednesday, December 9, 7 pm at UUFDC.

Phil, a neurologist who retired from the Marshfield Clinic, moved to Door County in April 2004. He and his wife Marilyn thoroughly enjoy life and the community of Ellison Bay and Door County. While Marilyn, a certified naturalist, keeps busy with Door County’s park system, land preservation, and the Nature Conservancy, Phil focuses on poetry. He is a member of the Wallace Group of poets, from whom, Phil states, “I have learned a great deal”. When he is not writing, Phil enjoys teaching children and adults how to write poetry.

Phil’s focuses in poetry lean toward people and travel. He prefers the role of observer and enjoys the exceptional in the ordinary as well as the ordinary in the exceptional. His publications include poems in the Wisconsin Poets Calendar and two chap books: Somewhere There and Looking for America.

Phil’s poems have appeared in several anthologies and magazines, such as the Wisconsin Medical Journal, as well as in newspapers including The Pulse and Marshfield News Herald.
