Poet and feminist Adrienne Rich, (Trumansburg, New York, October 2001).

“Art is a way of melting out through one’s skin.  ‘What, who is this about?’  is not the essential question.  A poem is not about, it is out of and to.  Passionate language in motion.”
- Adrienne Rich

Antonia Matthew has lived in Bloomington, Indiana since 1968.  Her writing group, “Five Women Poets,” has sustained her for 39 years.  She’s been published in small magazines, and she’s self-published a chapbook on her mother’s Alzheimer’s and written a play about her experiences as a child in World War II England.
