Alley Poet’s Pen: “Never Too Late”

 

Alley Poet's Pen - Sandee GertzNashville, TN – “Never Too Late…” (For an MFA)

Many people wonder what it’s like to go back to school later in life to do something they were meant to do (or should have done) a long time ago. Some people dream of a long-forgotten talent being awakened, a paintbrush being lifted back up to a canvas, or delving into studies for an advanced degree in a field they’re passionate about. Thankfully, in 2010, I found out what this is like.

In my case, passion was about picking up a pen. Looking into a blank page without fear—or most often into a computer screen.

Poetry Pilgrimage…From Alley Poet’s Pen

 

Alley Poet's Pen - Sandee GertzNashville, TN – About two years ago, not long after I made the move to Nashville, a poet friend, and fellow alum of the Wilkes University MA/MFA Creative Writing Program, Kait, turned me on to a “poemer” in New York City.  (Or more specifically: Bill Keys’s unique story and Facebook Page “Poems While You Wait.”)

First thing you have to know about Kait: she’s a free spirit and wears broad, impossibly large hats atop her long brown hair.  She writes poems and plays and wears red lipstick, which if it’s not applied already, will be whipped out of her purse and slicked on just before a photo is taken.

A Victorian Woman Goes to Africa, Deprived of Formal Education

 

Clarksville, TN – Most people in our society when they hear the term “Victorian woman” imagine someone in a long dress having afternoon tea with her friends. They picture a woman with very strict manners who might faint at the slightest disturbance. Many men in Victorian times would not even let the women in their families read the newspaper!

That description would not fit Mary Kingsley, daughter and oldest child of doctor, traveler and writer George Kingsley and Mary Bailey. She was the niece of Charles Kingsley who most enduring work is The Water-Babies: A Fairy Tale for a Land-Baby.
