I met Sue Silver in West Virginia when she was poeting around the Charlestown area. She brought white sage into my workshop to “smudge” each of the writers and to cleanse our creative scene. It was then I knew she was a poet for me to know. Now, in a temporary medical residency in Annapolis, she is tasting of the Annapolis/ DC poetry world and finding the area indispensable. When she settled in, all the foxes jumped out of their lairs, the rabbits from their holes, the fish from the sea to greet her, for she’s a healing energy among us. And her poetry is too.
Sue Silver is a poet and photographer living in Shepherdstown, WV and in Annapolis, MD where she currently works. In the field of Medicine she is a Nurse Anesthetist, CRNA.
She is published in Lummox #3, by Lummox Press, The Anthology of Appalachian Writers Volumes III, IV and V, Poetry and Prose, First Lights, and In Good Company. She reads her work at Bookend Poets of which she is a member, Scheherazade and Artomatic Jefferson County as well as on the radio at WSHC Shepherdstown University radio. She has studied with Bookend Poets and Sotto Voce and at Shepherd University with the Appalachian Masters Programs.
Sue has a deep interest and love of the practice of Energy Medicine and Transformational Healing of the whole person and finds poetry to be a major vehicle of that work.
