It with a profound sadness that Calling All Poets recognizes the sudden passing of our friend, advocate, and supoorter Dr. Pauline Uchmanowicz.
Pauline was a leading advocate for the teaching of writing in all its forms. She helped develop creative writing curricula in the department of English, and also served for many years as the coordinator of composition program, which oversees initial writing courses at New Paltz and therefore impacts the educational experiences of the vast majority of their students. Pauline was widely admired, engaged and a decorated member of the campus community and widely respected throughout the Hudson Valley writing and creative community. A gifted writer who featured for CAPS many times in the past, Pauline's scholarship, poetry, essays, and Reviews have appeared in Publications such as College English, International Journal of Comic Art, Ohio Review, Chronogram, Ploughshares, Radcliffe Quarterly, and Z magazine. Three of her pieces will be published in memoriam, in the upcoming CAPS@20 Anniversary Anthology.
Poetry has the last word.
