Karen Loeb reads her award-winning poems from the Wisconsin People & Ideas poetry contests.
Karen recently finished a two-year run May 2020 as Eau Claire’s Writer-in-Residence. Retired from teaching creative writing at UW-EC, she writes poetry and fiction at home in a room with artwork, including a David Hockney lithograph discovered in a resale store. Her writing has received an editor’s choice award in the Raymond Carver short story contest, and first place in the Wisconsin People & Ideas 2014 short story contest and the 2016 poetry contest.
