Superior Poetry Cafe features Judy Merrill-Smith

7:00 PM until 9:00 PM


Description: The Superior Poetry Café series presents Judy Merrill-Smith as the featured poet tonight, followed by an open mike. Born and raised in New Hampshire, she married a Pickford man and has lived all over the country. Three years ago, she and her family moved to the U.P. Her professional work has been centered on writing and editing. She is also a visual artist, working with textiles and photography. Recently, she started a business selling hand-dyed clothing and household goods called One Starry Tree. Impressed by the arts community here, she supports it by volunteering at Alberta House Arts Center and participating in the Creative Endeavors Support Group for Writers and Artists at Bayliss Library. About her writing she says, "I've written poetry ever since I knew it existed. When I was young, I hoped that reading books would make me wise. Poetry seemed to hold the deepest secrets; I began to write it to make sense of what I saw, and especially of how I felt. My poems focus on uncovering connections between my inner life, the world that I observe, and the universal." Superior Poetry Cafe is sponsored in part by LSSU.
