          Norman Stock

Since I’m writing this on Sunday, let’s hope we don’t pick up our papers or turn on the news this morning to learn of yet another mass shooting. As poetry lovers, you were probably as horrified as I to learn that one response to the San Bernardino murders here in the U.S. was an increase in gun purchases.

Editorializing over for a time, here is a brief introduction to a fine poet writing from very close to home – Queens – which, for those of you elsewhere, is one of the five boroughs of New York City. Yes, there is more to New York City than Manhattan and Brooklyn (the new Manhattan).

Norman Stock is the author of two books of poetry: Pickled Dreams Naked (NYQ Books, 2010) and Buying Breakfast for My Kamikaze Pilot (Gibbs Smith, 1994, winner of the Peregrine Smith Poetry Contest). His poems have also appeared in The New Republic, The New York Times, College English, The New York Quarterly, Verse, The New England Review, Denver Quarterly, and many other well-known magazines and anthologies, as well as in textbooks.

Click Here to Purchase: Pickled Dreams Naked by Norman Stock on the NYQ Books website.

Among the many awards he has received for his work are those from Writer’s Voice, Poets & Writers, the Maureen Egen Writers Exchange, Bennington Writing Workshops, and the Tenne Foundation. He was a finalist for
Poet Laureate of Queens. Read the rest of this post »

Save the Date: APM Symposium ‘On The Body’ May 6-7, 2016

At the dawning of psychoanalysis in Freud’s project and throughout his writings, the intertwining of body and psyche was elemental but Since Freud, the body has been progressively undertheorized. The APM Symposium ‘On the Body’ addresses the imperative to bring the body back to center stage and to consider the challenges it poses to our current ways of understanding our patients. Does the contemporary ideology of the body, an ideology of an omnipotent mind that transcends the limits of the body, produce different kind of patients from those of the times of Freud? How do we think of hysteria today and of the psychosomatic symptoms that we are en-countering more Read the rest of this post »
