Nina Corwin

One of the few good by-products of the continuing Covid pandemic has been the opportunity to reach out across the country to feature poets whose distance from Columbus would otherwise preclude their reading at The Poetry Forum. Nina Corwin is the author of two books and three chapbooks of poetry, including The Uncertainty of Maps (2011) and Dear Future (2017). Her poetry has appeared in From the Fishouse, Drunken Boat, Forklift OH, Harvard Review, Hotel Amerika, New Ohio Review, Verse, and numerous anthologies. She is a two-time Pushcart Prize nominee and curates the literary series at Chicago’s Woman Made Gallery. In daytime hours, she is a psychotherapist known for her work on behalf of victims of violence.

Bring a poem or two for the open mic that will follow Nina’s reading. Zoom doesn’t allow for us to pass the hat, but you can also donate to The Poetry Forum through our web site
