This week’s ongoing Tuesday Writing and Poetry series features a special evening with internationally published poet and novelist, SUE GUINEY.Guiney will read poetry from WRITING THROUGH: ANTHOLOGY OF POEMS FROM THE MAGIC PENCILS, collected in workshops throughout Cambodia, Vietnam and Singapore, followed by Q&A. These workshops were facilitated by Writing Through, an international NGO she founded. A family trip to Cambodia in 2006, led to Guiney writing the first of her collection of novels set in modern-day Cambodia, A Clash of Innocents. After the publication of that novel, Sue was determined to bring the fruit of her inspiration back to the people who inspired her.In 2010, the novelist, poet and educator led a writing workshop at Anjali House, an education and art centre in Siem Reap, Cambodia, and it was the beginning of Writing Through.
From there it grew into an international charity targeting at-risk populations – children, adults, students and teachers.Writing Through launched its first project in Cambodia in 2015 – specially designed workshops that use the writing of English poems and stories to develop thinking skills, language fluency and self-esteem. The program now extended to include Singapore and Vietnam, and is expanding.
The Charity has trained facilitators and volunteers around the world and is always receptive to being connected to new partners. An Anthology of Poems from the Magic Pencils is available via www.writingthrough.org, and at some bookstores.
Sue Guiney is an internationally published poet and novelist, focusing on the intersection of arts training and thinking skills. Skilled in Performing Arts, Manuscript, Fiction writing and Poetry, plus NGO administration and global education. She is a media and communication professional with a MA focused in Classics from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Coming March 9th, Featured Writer Jeff Bens
This is a very good book. It’s not a “hockey” book. “The Mighty Oak” is a complex book, and a morality play about how hard life can knock when you’ve not been prepared, lack the tools. Hockey is the delivery system for this story.

Video Companion to the Single “Noticed,” from Blue, Blue Box, by Rachel Elion Baird. This is a parody on a Spaghetti Western. In the hands of women, we make love, not war, or maybe, we just dance…
Many thanks to all in this video. It was an amazing and fun process with talented filmmakers, wonderful cast and crew, a real cowboy and his amazing horse.
