Coberly Poem in Wisconsin-Centric Book

Former Council for Wisconsin Writers board member and poet extraordinaire Robin Chapman alerted us to this piece in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

Wisconsin-centric books include history of Pabst Farms, tales of drownings,

and notes that Madison author and writing mentor, “Lenore McComas Coberly has a poem included in The Widow’s Handbook! and a new book of poems out from Fireweed Press, “For I Was Mountainborn.”

Here’s what the Fireweed Press says about Coberly:

“Lenore Coberly, a native of West Virginia, has lived in Wisconsin since the ‘60s and contributed greatly to Wisconsin’s writing life, largely as a teacher of creative writing. She co-authored of two writing texts, taught many years in local senior centers, and was founder of the Elderhostel writing program at Green Lake. She published Belonging, a book of poems, with Fireweed Press, and more recently, the Handywoman Stories and Sarah’s Girls: A Chronicle of Big Ugly Creek, published by Ohio University Press.”

Thanks for letting us know, Robin.
