Meet the Poet
Rita Lange Severino is a proud Philadelphia native. She has been writing poems since the age of ten, when her grandmother asked her to write her a poem for Christmas. Since 1990, she has taught middle school English, a task rewarding and frustrating in equal measure. Her earlier work was written with a young audience in mind, though she has recently begun writing poems that test the waters in the deep end. Her work can be found on Writerscafe.com, and now on VerseWrights. Read.
