Introduction for The Writers Studio Reading at the KGB Bar, NYC, January 26, 2014 :
For nine years Eleanor Kedney has been inspiring aspiring writers to go deeper, give more, dare greatly. A long time student in the New York Master Class, Eleanor sharpened her formidable skills as a poet and teacher under the tutelage of Writer's Studio founder Philip Schultz. Eleanor has a remarkable ability to make you take a second look at the everyday, to show you the gruesome, gorgeous, imperfect beauty of the world, to remind us that "there is, after all, an afternoon sun." Her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in NY Quarterly, Many Mountains Moving, and Skidrow Penthouse, among others.
--Lela Scott MacNeil, Writers Studio Teacher and Fiction Writer
