The Poet's Voice
Beverly Stock is an American poet, born and raised in the midwest. A former journalist and feature writer, she delights in creating poetry that finds life in the mundane and makes the familiar new again. Possessing a well-honed, distinctive voice, Beverly's work is characterized by a delightful blend of wry candor, bright wit, and winking optimism.
Beverly's perspective is expressed through a wide breadth of styles and forms. She is as happy to create formal sonnets, acrostic poems, and villanelles, as she is to compose modern, impressionistic verse.
Prior to her life in the world of poetry, Beverly enjoyed a successful career as a feature magazine writer, a corporate communications manager, and as the owner of a boutique creative services agency. She also worked as a freelance journalist for almost twenty years, and saw her work published in newspapers and weekly periodicals across the United States, and in international media.
