FEEL THE POWER OF POETRY
Our guest for the Poet Quarantini on April 16, at 7 p.m. is Terry Cox-Joseph, who is the current president of The Poetry Society of Virginia, published poet, and prolific artist. Her latest book, Between Then and Now, a chapbook on the joys of long life and the pain of dementia, was published in 2018.
An award-winning poet, she has been published in Northern Virginia Review, Allegro, Chiron Review, The Blotter, Avocet, and Red River Review, among others. She is also a former newspaper reporter and editor. From 1994 to 2004, Terry was coordinator for the annual Christopher Newport University Writers’ Conference and Contest.
A talented artist, Terry displays and sells her watercolors, acrylics, and oils at Blue Skies Gallery in Hampton, Virginia. Her children, pets and the waterfront provide a constant resource for her writing and art.
We have invited her to read some of her poetry and to tell us about The Poetry Society of Virginia. This statewide group offers a unique list of 25 (!) categories of poetry in their annual contest. Most are sponsored and many have a monetary prize. Hopefully, Terry will tell us the history of this interesting and challenging organization.
