Poetry: Don’t Let It Molder in a Drawer, Publish It!

Glendale, CA– Glendale City Library presents Carolyn Howard-Johnson in a free seminar and poetry reading where she will introduce two new poet voices, Sona Ovasapyan and Christine Alexanians.

Poetry: Don’t Let It Molder in a Drawer, Publish It! will be open to the public on Saturday, April 21, 10 am to noon at the Glendale Central Library Auditorium, 222 E. Harvard St, Glendale, CA 91205

This event will be led by Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of Tracings, a chapbook of poetry (Finishing Line Press) and Cherished Pulse, an e-chapbook of unconventional love poetry, as well as four other award-winning books including The Frugal Book Promoter: How to Do What Your Publisher Won’t and The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success. Howard-Johnson was honored by members of the California Legislature as Woman of the Year in Arts and Entertainment, by the Book Publicists of Southern California with their Irwin Award and by her community with a Character and Ethics Award for her efforts to promote tolerance with her writing.

Howard-Johnson, an instructor for UCLA Extension Writers’ Program, will also read from her works and introduce two emerging Glendale poets from the Chevy Chase Library Critique group, Sona Ovasapyan and Christine Alexanians.

She will read from her first published work. Christine has a bachelor’s in Journalism from Tehran. A Glendale resident, she has lived in California since 1980. She has a creative nonfiction project The Suspended Garden in the publishing process. She will read her prose poem “92 Years of Silence.”
