Joaquin Miller Poetry: LM Wiseman & 2013 Young Poets

June 9 Laura Madeline Wiseman, poet, scholar, professor, read with the 2013 Jacklyn Potter Young Poet Competition winners Elena Botts and Kathryn McDonald Matheson in the Joaquin Miller Poetry Series at Rock Creek Nature Center in Rock Creek Park.

Rosemary Winslow, co-director of the Miller Series, hosted. Perry Epes, director of the Jacklyn Potter Young Poet Competition, introduced the young poets who were selected by Donal Ilich.

Madeline Wiseman read from work focused on feminist writers and themes. Kathryn Matheson read her narrative prose poems. Elena Botts read from new work and her book a little luminescence, published by Allbook Books in their Young Artist Series.

Thanks to the 25 plus people who attended and those who participated in the opening reading. Our next Miller Poetry Reading on June 16 brings us Adam Chiles and Moira Egan.
