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 ReviewCALYX, A Journal of Art and Literature by WomenCrab Creek ReviewPassengers, the anthology Kind of Hurricane PressApeiron 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.
