Pat on Sabbatical

Pat Schneider is taking a writing sabbatical from September 2016 to the end of April 2017 to work on her own writing, including a new book of poems tentatively titled: Love Song for Sister Age.

A group of poems from this book appeared in the January 2016 issue of The Sun.

Her recent essay titled “Original Voices: Teaching Everyone to Write” appeared in Anchor Magazine in the Spring Summer 2016 edition.
