Please join us as Melissa Studdard will speak with writer and writing teacher, Julie Maloney. Maloney’s first poetry collection, Private Landscape, was published in 2007, and in 2003 she founded WOMEN READING ALOUD, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting women writers through special events and workshops. Maloney is a trained workshop leader in the Amherst Writers and Artists Method, an organization whose philosophy is that “every person is a writer, and every writer deserves a safe environment in which to experiment, learn, and develop craft.” Maloney’s teachings focus on what she calls the 3-in-1 principle, which asserts the equal value of the writer, the reader, and the listener. Of Maloney’s first poetry collection, Poet Charlotte Mandel states, “Julie Maloney's poems in her collection - PRIVATE LANDSCAPE - move with the exquisite grace of her abilities as a dancer and choreographer. Dream narratives sing in delicate imagery. Pain of cancer is here, honestly revealed and transcended; love is here, in its greatest giving. There is not a trace of easy sentimentality. This is a collection to remember, at once personal and universal.”
