Our second season, “Online Poetry: The Refuge of Witnessing” will provide a weekly poetry sanctuary to hear moving words, deepen our exploration of their meaning, and connect with each other. Join us each Thursday from 12:00 to 1:00 pm. It will be your port in a worldly storm.
This week’s poet will feature Julie Danho. Her first full-length collection, Those Who Keep Arriving, won the 2018 Gerald Cable Book Award from Silverfish Review Press. Her chapbook, Six Portraits, received the 2013 Slapering Hol Press Chapbook Award, and her poems have appeared in journals such as Pleiades, Alaska Quarterly Review, Blackbird, and New Ohio Review as well as featured on The Writer’s Almanac, Poetry Daily, and Verse Daily. She has been awarded fellowships from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts and the MacColl Johnson Fund.
Julie has an M.F.A. from Ohio State University and works as an editor in Providence, Rhode Island. She loves art history, serial commas, and taking more books out of the library than she can possibly read. She is married to the poet David O’Connell.
