Known for their themed, improv–style poetry readings, Cool Women riff on each other’s poems like jazz musicians, providing an unpredictable
and compelling performance.
All nine members—Eloise Bruce, Juditha Dowd, Lois Marie Harrod, Betty Lies, Judy Michaels, Sharon Olson, Penelope Schott, Maxine Susman and Gretna Wilkinson—have deep New Jersey roots. Since their debut in Princeton on Valentine’s Day 2000, they have given dozens of readings in the tri-state area and as far away as Portland, Oregon. Each of the Cool Women is widely published on her own.
Collectively they have appeared in hundreds of literary journals, have won countless prizes, grants,
fellowships, and awards, and have written several dozen books. This year they celebrate 24 years as a group and 20 years of performing together.
