Iuppa to Showcase Work at SUNY Potsdam April 4
M.J. Iuppa, writer-in-residence and director of the arts minor program at St. John Fisher College, will be a featured speaker at SUNY Potsdam on Wednesday, April 4, at an event hosted by the College's Blueline Magazine, a literary magazine dedicated to the spirit of the Adirondacks. The event begins at 7:00 p.m., and will be held in the Barrington Student Union Multi-Purpose Room.
Iuppa, a longstanding contributor to the magazine, will launch the College's celebrations for Poetry Month by reading from her newest work, "Within Reach," published by Cherry Grove Collections in 2010. She has published more than 300 poems in magazines across the country, and is the recipient of several awards for teaching and creative writing.
Nancy Berbrich, Blueline book reviewer, said, "This is nature poetry, poetry of artistic struggle, poignant and profound - the metamorphosis of a poet."
The event is free and open to the public. Copies of "Within Reach" will be available for purchase.
