Jodi A. Corbett has taught writing and literature and still teaches speech at Reading Area Community College, Reading, Pennsylvania. She holds a Master's in English with an emphasis in Composition, Rhetoric and Literacy Studies.  Her poems and flash fiction condense the contradicting energies of working class families. She is grateful for having compassionate creative writing faculty, Heather Thomas and Karen Bloomain, while a non-traditional student at Kutztown University.  
She has published poems in Lehigh Literary Review, Avalon Literary Review, Eunoia Review, Mused:BellaOnline Literary Review, Red River Review, and she was a featured poet in National Council of Teachers of English poetry month, 2012. Her first chapbook Fried Eggs and Un-edged Lawns (2006) is available through Foothills Publishing.
Jodi is reading from three unpublished collections this evening: Mad Geography, Cadet Summer, and Ordinary Time. 

Bring friends, bring poems, bring your friends' poems!

THE FUNDRAISER TO SEND A POET TO MACEDONIA  (See www.gofundme.com/soulcrytomacedonia for more information.)

Family and Friends, I need your help! I just received an invitation to
the 18th edition of the International Poetry Festival “Ditët e Naimit”,
which will take place from October 16th to 19rd, 2014, in the town of
Tetova (Macedonia).
The trip consists of a 4-day
performance tour through Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania and
Bosnia-Herzegovenia. I will be representing the United States at the
festival and will perform along with poets from 20 other countries. I
will be the 2nd Spoken Word artist to represent the U.S. at this
prestigious event.

While my stay will be covered
once I arrive, I'll need your help to cover travel expenses to the host
country. So contribute, like and share with your family, extended
family and friends.

Your help is greatly appreciated!
