Ephraim poet Loraine Brink will be the featured poet in the UU Fellowship’s Dickinson Poetry Series September 8 at 7 pm.
Brink describes herself as, “A poet with a light heart trying to get serious about portraying life. I try to see the foibles and humor in my fellow man, be they friends or relatives who provide me with a little mirth. I have tried to write about nature, birch trees and sea gulls, but that comes out as drivel, so any topic is fair game. One of these days I will compile a group of my poems and produce a chapbook. “
Brink was drawn to poetry after meeting Sister Bay poet Barbara Larsen. She took courses at the Clearing, attended retreats at St Joseph’s and put on the cloak of Poet. Her work has been published in the Peninsula Pulse, Wisconsin Poet’s Calendar, Free Verse and Verse Wisconsin. She belongs to the Wallace and Unabridged Poetry Groups, and has placed second in the WFOP Triad Contest.
The Dickinson Poetry Series features a well-known poet each month providing an opportunity for that person to read. Others in attendance are then invited to read their poetry. The Series is free and open to the public. The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42, Ephraim. For more information, visit http://www.uufdc.org.
