Dancing With Bare Feet

Carolyn Raphael retired from the English Department at Queens-borough Community College, CUNY, after more than thirty years of teaching. Her poems have appeared in journals including The Lyric, Measure, Blue Unicorn, Long Island Quarterly, and on the Newington-Cropsey Cultural Studies website for the American Arts Quarterly, where her poem, “Honorable Mention,” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
Starting in 2006, she ran a poetry reading series in her hometown, Great Neck, Long Island. Guests included such luminaries as X.J Kennedy, Rhina Espaillat, and Tom Disch.  Now she is working on a project called “Poetry in the Plaza,” which places poems on local bulletin boards, much as “Poetry in Motion” placed poems on the subway. She also coordinates an annual poetry contest for the Village of Great Neck Plaza.
