Norma Ketzis Bernstock lives in Milford, Pennsylvania where she is a member of the Upper Delaware Writers Collective and a founding member of Milford’s Highlands Photographic Guild where her photographs are part of the permanent collection. Her poetry has appeared in many literary journals including Caduceus, Connecticut River Review, Paterson Literary Review, Lips, the Stillwater Review and the anthologies, Paterson, the Poets’ City, Poetree, Pennsylvania Seasons and Voices From Here.
She previously worked as an educator in New York City and New Jersey, but now works full time as a poet and photographer. A first collection of poems appeared in her chapbook, What We Remember. Her newest chapbook entitled, Don’t Write a Poem About Me After I’m Dead, was published by Big Table Publishing Company in Newton, Massachusetts in 2011. Reviewer, Diane Lockward said “In tender, powerful and well-wrought poems, the poet examines the life of a modern woman. This…collection hits both the head and the heart.”
