Join us as we explore the intersection of poetry, spirituality and social justice as we read poetry and engage in lively conversation.

About our Host:

Dr. Lindsay Rockwell’s love of poetry is born from her curiosity of unifying themes of theology, science and justice. She won first prize in the October Project Poetry Contest in April 2020 and has been published in the Straw Dog Writers’ Guild Blog. Lindsay participates in Straw Dog Writers’ Guild events with Ellen Watson, Straw Dog Writers’ Guild Poetry Critique with Michael Goldman, the 24 Pearl Street event with Nancy K. Pearson as well as Orion magazine’s Earth Verse with Kim Stafford. As a medical oncologist she has been published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology and coauthored In Defiance of Death: Exposing The Real Costs of End-of-Life Care (Praeger, 2008). Lindsay lives in Northampton with her wife and three furry children.

Lindsay is interested in pursuing collaborative projects that bring artists and activists together to reimagine and rebuild community. Her intention is that such work mobilizes our hearts, minds and imaginations to move the arc of our collective experience toward greater unity.
