Join us for an open mic and reading at TidePool Books, featuring Jennifer L Freed, winner of the 2022 Frank O’Hara prize.



Jennifer L Freed’s When Light Shifts: A Memoir in Poems (finalist, 2022 Sheila Margaret Motton Book Prize) explores the aftermath of her mother’s cerebral hemorrhage, touching on themes of identity and ability, healing and loss, and the altered relationships that emerge in a family crisis. Freed is also the author of These Hands Still Holding, a finalist for the 2013 New Women’s Voices Chapbook competition. Her work has been published in print and on-line journals, and has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Best of the Net, and the Orison Anthology. Other awards include the 2022 Frank O’Hara prize  (Worcester County Poetry Association), the 2020 Samuel Washington Allen Prize (New England Poetry Club), and honorable mention for the 2022 Connecticut Poetry Award. She lived in the Worcester area for 20 years, but has recently moved to Beverly Mass.  Please visit jfreed.weebly.com to learn more.
