About the writers:
Ravenna Raven is a poet, educator, and sewing artist living in Washington, D.C. She spent her childhood in a 250-year-old farmhouse in rural New Jersey, reading and writing stories to entertain herself. While studying poetry as a graduate student at the University of Maryland, she began developing and teaching courses for creative writing, reading development, and inquiry research. Ravenna is a listener poet with a nonprofit that promotes good listening in hospitals and healing spaces while supporting patient and staff wellbeing and the humanization of healthcare. Her upcoming projects will combine her love of language with a passion for sewing and garment design to create custom, one-of-a-kind wearable poems.
Peter Chamberlain became a story-teller by living vicariously through his patrons while bartending at night and retelling their stories in creative writing classes during the day. He recently exhibited a film, “Saudades”, which is a Portuguese word for memory, or as the piece argues, a word to describe film itself. The film was accompanied by an original soundtrack inspired by the music of Belém, and the stories Peter has taken in over the years. As an American University MFA candidate, he soon anticipates a full-time occupation of graduate studies, researching film and media arts. He aspires to find a way to utilize film as a tool for teaching.
