killed the cat, but

                            it has kept me from

                                       committing suicide

                                                        all these many years…
Constance Woodring
I am a 72-year-old retired psychotherapist/ educator/program developer/social activist who is getting
back to my true love of writing after 45 years in my real job. I have a B.A. in English from Pennsylvania
State University (1963-1967), getting great marks from John Barth and Paul West. I have a MSS from
Bryn Mawr Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research (1968-70). I have written a novel,
Visiting Hours, which is currently being reviewed for possible publication by VINE LEAVES PRESS and a
non-fiction book, What Power? Which People? Reflections on Power Abuse and
Empowerment, which I am trying to get published. Over many years I have written poems, songs
(I am also a musician), a  play (Half A Night with John Doe) and professional materials for conferences,
staff trainings and seminars. My poem, The Glass Jar, has been accepted for publication by SICK LIT
MAGAZINE. My poem, On the Death of My Parents, has been accepted for publication by DIME SHOW
REVIEW. This poem has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize.
