Judith Antelman is a poet and writer who grew up in Passaic, New Jersey. Her passion for travel landed her in cities as far away from home as San Francisco and then eastward to Berlin and Krakow. After traveling and living between Passaic and Poland, she has found a home—for a little while—in Montclair, back in New Jersey, where she writes poems and teaches poetry workshops she designs for all levels.
When not writing poetry and teaching, she plays classical piano, as she attempts to master the masters—Bach, Chopin, Beethoven. She finds poetic inspiration in music, as well as in the starker reality of current events and political landscapes. Currently, she is finishing her first full-length poetry collection, which includes poems of witness and resilience. Judith holds a Bachelor of Science in Communication Studies from Emerson College and will earn an MFA in Creative Writing–Poetry from The New School this May.
