While we are busily working on the upcoming winter issue of Word Fountain (Look for announcements about our release party at the Osterhout, scheduled for January 5th at 6:30 pm!) we’ll continue to share some of the exciting activities and accomplishments of our contributors. That includes writers from previous and upcoming issues. You can also keep up with news on the ground via our Facebook Page here.
Daryl Sznyter’s piece “How to Fall Asleep and Never Wake Up” appeared in our summer 2016 issue and she’s been quite busy since then. Her poems “Bald Mountain” and “Hawaiian Spring” appeared in the recent Noble Gas Qrtrly and several of her pieces have recently been published in Eunoia Review. In the October edition of Bluestem you can read along as she presents “I am the Voodoo Queen.”
Her poem “The Weave” was featured on the Best American Poetry Blog last January.
Coming up this weekend you can take advantage of the opportunity to hear Daryl read her work in person alongside several others at the fifth anniversary of the Writer’s Showcase series at the Old Brick Theatre in Scranton, PA. The event starts at 7:00 pm and requires only a small 4 dollar cover charge. Click on the link for more information and to join the Facebook group so you can get all the details if you’re within traveling distance.
In January Sznyter’s work will be featured in Theories of Her, an Experimental Anthology. And she’s looking forward to participating in the Bridgewater International Poetry Festival at Bridgwater College in Virginia, January 12 through the 15.
Daryl received her MFA in poetry from The New School and her BA in creative writing from Pepperdine University. Previous and forthcoming publications include Best American Poetry blog, Bluestem Magazine, Eunoia Review, The Fem, Noble/Gas Qtrly, and Word Fountain. She currently resides in Dunmore, Pennsylvania.
