The Dickinson Poetry Series features Lee LeVoy Nov. 8, 7 pm at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (UUF) of Door County in north Ephraim.
LeVoy began writing poems for her family 25 years ago. In recent years her poetry has become a spiritual practice: mindfulness of the moment, listening to the inner voice. She writes about what amazes her in people and in the world.
When LeVoy moved with her husband from Chicago to Ellison Bay in 1999, she continued her career in parish ministry. She is also the Director of Sanctuary, a retreat in Ellison Bay. Living in Door County has offered LeVoy new possibilities for growth in a circle of poets, especially Belles Lettres Poetry Writing Group.
LeVoy’s first book of poems, Still Voice, was published this spring. Her poems have appeared in Wisconsin Poets’ Calendar, and Listen: A Seeker’s Resource.
On the second Wednesday of every month the Dickinson Poetry Series features a local or regional poet followed by an open mic. A reception follows affording an opportunity to meet the poets. The series is named for Emily Dickinson, a prolific poet and philosophically in tune with Unitarian beliefs. The public is welcome and there is no charge. The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy 42 in north Ephraim. For more information call 920.854.7559.
