Author's Bio

Beth Feldman Brandt has been writing poetry for six years during which time her writing has investigated such diverse themes as atomic clocks, ocean habitats and "The Origin of Species". She is the author of Sage, a work with visual artist Claire Owen based on a 1633 text of herbal remedies, and Solace, published by Greenleaf Poetry Press, and created as part of the 2014 Bartram Boxes Remix exhibition at the Center for Art in Wood in Philadelphia. She was a winner of the 2013 Haiku-Year-in-Review poetry competition by Broadsided Press. Her work has been published in Philadelphia Stories, The Quay Journal of the Arts and The Mad Poet's Review.

In addition to her collaborations with visual artists, she has also collaborated with composers. Her poem, "Transmutation", based on the life of Charles Darwin, was set to music by composer Andrew Litts as part of “Dialogues with Darwin”, a collaborative project with the American Philosophical Society performed by Network for New Music in February 2010. She is currently collaborating with LItts on a song cycle based on her poems entitled, Wind Rose.

Beth is a five-time artist-in-residence at the Ragdale Foundation. She is the Executive Director of the Stockton Rush Bartol Foundation that supports arts and cultural programs in Philadelphia and Chair of the Poet Laureate Committee for the City of Philadelphia.

In danger of becoming known as ‘that nature poet’, she is psyched about her new project, RetroLove.
