Elinor Cramer

Most of us in Auburn and the surrounding region embrace the fact that Ron Van Nostrand knows a lot about poetry and those folks who pen wonderful and enchanting verses.  When “word, revisited” started to line-up featured speakers, Ron enthusiastically recommended a colleague that he was impressed with.

Elinor Cramer is a poet living in Syracuse NY where she also practices psychotherapy.  She’s a serial homeowner whose recent chapbook, “Mayflower,” (published by Red Bird) is about an interlude of living in a cooperative apartment building with unlikely shipmates, and being part of the usual conflicts and extraordinary caring. Her full length collection, “She Is a Pupa, Soft and White” was published by WordTech Communications in 2011.  Her poems have appeared in “Stone Canoe,” “Olive Trees,” “The Comstock Review,” and other journals. Elinor has read her work throughout the country especially in the mid-West and the Central New York region.  Ms. Cramer holds a MA in Psychology and a MFA in Creative Writing.

Come and welcome her to Auburn as she kicks-off the fall season of “word, revisited.”
