Ilene H. Rudman
Ilene H. Rudman is a career counselor, psychotherapist and coach in private practice just outside Boston. Her poems have appeared in numerous journals including: the Comstock Review, CALYX, A Journal of Art and Literature by Women, Crab Creek Review, Passengers, the anthology Kind of Hurricane Press, Apeiron Review and An Anthology of New England Writers. Her manuscript, Staying The Night, was selected as a finalist in the 2019 Comstock Review’s Jessie Bryce Niles Chapbook Contest; and will be published by Finishing Line Press later this fall. Much of Rudman’s poetry grapples with fear of real and anticipatory loss. Sometimes she can only kneel in prayer. Other times, humor seems her best antidote.
