Tompkins Corners Welcomes Kateri Kosek To The Poets’ Corner

Tompkins Corners will welcome Kateri Kosek to the Poets’ Corner on Sunday, March 10th, at 3:00 pm. She is the author of American Eclipse, winner of the Three Mile Harbor Press Poetry Prize, and a chapbook, Vernal (Split Rock Press). Her poetry and essays have appeared in

Orion, Terrain, Catamaran, Creative Nonfiction, Briar Cliff Review, and Northern Woodlands Magazine. 

“Kosek’s poems succeed at combining beauty and waste, celebrating the world’s lushness and simultaneously knowing the part we play in its devastation. These poems mark the seasons of nature and out-of-season anomalies. In recording the small, recognizable moments, they act as a center of gravity to an off-kilter existence.” — Sarah Sousa, author of See the Wolf and Split the Crow.

Kateri holds an MFA from Western CT State University. She has been a resident at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts and the Tallgrass Artist Residency in Kansas. She grew up in the Hudson Valley, lives in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, teaches college English, and freelances for Berkshire Magazine and The Berkshire Edge. She serves on the Center for Northern Woodlands Education board and recently wrote the text for a book on nature art.

Following Kateri’s reading will be an open mic. Registration will be available on-site on the day of the reading. All writers are welcome! The suggested donation is $10. Tickets may be purchased at the door. 

This event is funded, in part, by Poets & Writers with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
