Poet | Poetry Advocate

Calling herself a “poetry advocate,” Elise Paschen, Ph.D., spreads her love of the form with creativity, imagination and enthusiasm. The author of three volumes of poetry, she is the co-founder of Poetry in Motion, an organization that places poetry in the transit systems
of cities throughout the country, helping to enhance poetry’s role in our lives.

“Poetry matters because it condenses reality into a short amount of time and space.”
