FEATURING  CHARLES  COTÉ  and  JENNIFER LITT ($3 members, $6 public .Curated by Wanda Schubmehl

Whether psychotherapy, poetry, teaching, community service, parenting, marriage, friendship, or golf, Charles Coté sees life as improvisational art. However, certain about uncertainty, he knows he could be mistaken, so he reads up on science. In addition to his private practice in psychotherapy, he teaches poetry at Writers and Books, and serves on the board for Melissa’s Living Legacy: Teen Cancer Foundation. He’s studied poetry at Sarah Lawrence and The Palm Beach Poetry Festival, authored a chapbook (Flying for the Window, Finishing Line Press, 2008), and published other poems, most recently in Segue, Redactions, The Cortland Review, Lake Affect and Salamander. He’s been working on a full-length called Shrink, about someone just like him and every other person he’s come to know, and by that, he means it’s a work of fiction.

The sole proprietor of Jennifer Litt Writing Services, Jennifer Litt teaches writing at Saint John Fisher College in Rochester, New York. Jennifer coordinated several education-through-the-arts projects with Writers & Books and other community organizations during her 15 year tenure with the Rochester City School District. She recently unearthed a poetry journal from her twenties and says, “What a difference 30 years and some great teachers make.” Her work has been published in Bigger Than They Appear: Anthology of Very Short Poems, Jet Fuel Review, Lake Affect Magazine and Mixed Fruit.
