Author: Eileen Aronson Ireland

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Eileen Aronson Ireland wrote poems in high school but not until migrating to Venice Beach, in Los Angeles, California in 1959, did she write again, inspired by Stuart Z. Perkoff's poetry workshop. She also became active in the social & civil rights movements of the era, as seen in her work. By 1989 she was no longer writing, and in 1995 she retired from California Civil Service, to Las Vegas, New Mexico. In 2010 a phone call came from poet/professor William Mohr, who had tracked her down after hearing a 1964 tape of her poetry reading. Then, she again began to write; and after he introduced her to Susan Hansell, playwright/editor of Spot Lit Magazine, her work was published in multiple issues.
