Alan Walowitz has been writing poetry, sometimes successfully and sometimes not, for more than 50 years. He has less than half of an MFA degree in Writing from Goddard College, and has entire degrees from Eastern Connecticut State University and Queens College.  He’s studied with poets Estha Weiner, Fred Marchant, C.K. Williams, Carol Muske, Colette Inez, and Stephen Stepanchev, among others who probably would not want their names mentioned with his.

Though writing poems can be quite lucrative, he earned the bulk of his fortune as a teacher and supervisor of secondary English for 34 years.  His poems can be found lots of places on the web and off. He’s a Contributing Editor at Verse-Virtual, and teaches at Manhattanville College and St. John’s University.

Alan’s chapbook, Exactly Like Love, is in its second printing and is available from Osedax Press. His poem, The Story of the Milkman, was featured in an article in the NY Times in April, 2017.  His new book of poems has generated ​some little​ interest within his own family, and he hopes to see it published before the end of his current run.  For more about him, and more bad jokes, go to his website.

  1. This is terrific, Alan! Tough and beautifully composed…So harsh the 2 line wallop at the end.
    Great movement, sensory delights, power packed.

  2. Alan Walowitz continues to amaze me with another great offering. If only his golf game was equally amazing ! Suggest he move to the North Fork, where I reside… fresh veggies, and fresh souls, are always being harvested.

  3. One cannot let their expectations of anything related to I495 get too carried away. Fortunately, this disappointment was minor- just think of the myriad souls who sought a higher education on the banks of I495.
