Our fourth session of word, revisited will feature poet and literary activist Melissa Tuckey.

Tuckey has a background in environmental work and is a co-founder of Split This Rock, a national literary organization dedicated to “calling poets to the center of public life.”

Tuckey is author of Tenuous Chapel, a book of poems selected by Charles Simic for the ABZ Press First Book Prize (2013) and editor of Ghost Fishing: An Eco-Justice Poetry Anthology (University of Georgia Press 2018). She lives in Ithaca, New York where she currently serves Tompkins County Poet Laureate.

After the featured speaker’s program, there is an open mic portion of the evening in which audience members can share some of their own written work.

Word, revisited is held on the second and fourth Thursday of every month, through November 14. Doors open at 5:30, program begins at 6:00. Admission is $3.

Word, revisited is a collaborative program of the Cayuga Museum, Olive Trees, a local literary magazine, and aaduna, an online adventure with words and images.
