My interest in poetry was recently reignited while attending graduate school. I decided to write a collection of poems examining my memories as a survivor's daughter. Most of these poems explore my Ukrainian heritage, family, and culture. Currently, I host a monthly poetry series held at the Newtown Bookshop located in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It's a treat to host a group of kindred spirits in the local community with whom I share a common interest—reading and writing poetry. Our poetry group meetings occur on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm. Join us! www.newtownbookshop.com
