Stephen Anderson, a Milwaukee poet and translator, will be the next featured poet in the Dickinson Poetry Series, set for Oct. 12, 7 pm, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County, 10341 Water St. (Hwy 42) in Ephraim.
Anderson’s work has appeared in Southwest Review, Latin American Literature Today, Verse Wisconsin, Foundling Review, Twist in Time, Tipton Poetry Journal, New Purlieu Review and more. He received an Honorable Mention in the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets’ 2016 Chapbook Contest, and many of his poems have been featured on the Lake Effect Program radio show in Milwaukee.
Anderson is the author of three chapbooks and three full-length collections: In the Garden of Angels and Demons, The Dream Angel Plays the Cello and High Wire. In 2013, six of his poems formed the text for a chamber-music song cycle, The Privileged Secrets of the Arch.
An open mic will follow Anderson’s reading to give others a chance to read their poems, and attendees can meet the poet during a closing reception.
