Event details

"Louie Galloway is a preeminent poet of place. That place may be the piney woods of Louisiana or the urban streets of Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. Wherever she has found herself, she has spoken in the stubbornly quiet, insistent, and maturing voice of a woman and an artist. Louie Galloway’s poems are the passionate and committed markers of an adventurous life, pointing the reader to the sure ground on which we all stand.” -- David Eberly

Writer and poet, Louie Elizabeth Galloway, grew up in rural Louisiana and New Orleans. She received her doctorate from Boston University and taught at Massachusetts College of Art, where she is professor emerita. Some of these poems have appeared in Poiesis, Coal City Review, Trivia, Kalliope, Hanging Loose, New England Studies Association Newsletter, Phantasm and in Imagination and Place: An Anthology.
