Readings of Original Poems by Local Poets Our free PoetryMic series introduces you to a varied group of talented poets that live
Our free PoetryMic series introduces you to a varied group of talented poets that live in and around Sarasota. But you never know what visiting, well-known poets may drop by the loft!
This month’s poets are Lauren Udwari, Carlos Bardalez, and Susan Dworski Nusbaum.
About the poets:
Lauren Udwari is the daughter of an Austrian immigrant with gypsy roots and an Illinois-born American whose lineage includes Louisa May Alcott and James Fenimore Cooper. She feels most at home on the road and most like herself when writing poetry. As an empath who grew up caring too deeply about too much—from the tree in her backyard to the overlooked kid in the back of the class—she always knew her role was as an observer: to see but not be seen. She found her voice in 2020 at the onset of a pandemic while using Instagram photos as visual poetry prompts. She’s written 200 poems in two years—all unpublished.
Carlos Bardalez was born in Peru, raised in Miami, and served as a combat medic during Operation Iraqi Freedom. He studied English Literature at USF and has been a resident of Sarasota for 15 years. He is a poet, lgbtq+ activist, and jack of all trades. His work has appeared in Sand Journal out of Berlin, Funicular, cream city review, and Collateral, among others.
Susan Dworski Nusbaum:
Susan Dworski Nusbaum received her BA from Smith College and her law degree from the University of Buffalo Law School. She has worked as a teacher, arts administrator, and most recently as a criminal prosecutor. She has been a frequent participant in the Chautauqua Institution Writers’ Festival and Chautauqua Writers’ Center poetry workshops and has served on the Board of the Chautauqua Literary Arts Friends. She has published three poetry collections: Alive in This Place, Open Wide the Eye, and What We Take With Us. Her work has also appeared in numerous publications.
This free in-person event is in the Loft at our store at The Mark, 117 S. Pineapple.
