FEATURED READER Bertha Rogers
Bertha Rogers is Poet Laureate of Delaware County, Master Teaching Artist, and teacher of writing and visual arts in schools throughout New York. More than 400 of her poems have been published in journals and anthologies.
Her translation of Beowulf, the Anglo-Saxon Epic, was published in 2000, and her translation of the riddle-poems from the Anglo-Saxon Exeter Book, Uncommon Creatures, Singing Things, is forthcoming from Birch Brook Press.
She has received fellowships to the Hawthornden International Writers Retreat, and others. Her poem suite “Three for Summer’s End” was selected by composer Jamie Keesecker and set to music and performed for the MacDowell/Monadnock Music for the Mountain series. Her interdisciplinary exhibit (images and words in two and three dimensions) will open at Delaware County Historical Association in December. Her ability to connect visual art with the written word is astounding.
