Jennifer Harmon is a poet who was born and raised in New Mexico, currently residing in Astoria, Queens. Inspired by her late mother Patty, also a writer, Jennifer’s goal is to share their story with the world. Her work is heavily influenced by personal relationships with family and friends as well as the atmosphere of the Southwest desert and the East Coast. Although she misses the hot enchiladas and the enchanting pastel pink and orange sunsets of New Mexico, she has formed a rich and rewarding life in New York City. Intertwining her mother’s writings with her own, Jennifer’s poetry readings provide a unique and often very moving experience to her audience. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Midwood resident Ptr Kozlowski has been writing poems along the way through a varied life. He learned letterpress printing from his father in Connecticut and worked as a typesetter in San Francisco in the late 1970’s, where he also was a roadie. Back East, he’s been a truck driver and a NYC cabbie. He’s played guitar in bands from Folk and New Age to New Wave and Grunge. Ptr’s poems have appeared in Hobo Jungle, Curare, and Stained Sheets, and in anthologies from Brownstone Poets and Great Weather for Media. He’s been featured at major Brooklyn and New York readings.
A native New Yorker and former director of the New York Poets Cooperative, Robert Kramer studied and lived in Europe as the US Army’s First Lieutenant, Fulbright Scholar in Munich, Germany, and as Swiss Government Fellow in Bern, returning to the United States to teach at the university level.
He’s the author of numerous books and articles on the history of literature and art, and has received six awards from the National Endowment for the Humanities. A widely published playwright, poet, translator of European literature, he has read his poetry and translations on radio and television, as well as at Harvard, Princeton, and NYU.
He is the Professor of Art History at Manhattan College at Riverdale, New York.
