A poem begins with a lump in your throat ~~ Robert Frost

Storyteller and poet Eve Hoffman, a sixth generation Georgian, is rooted in red clay and grew up on a dairy farm by the Chattahoochee River. Along the way she graduated from Smith College, studied in Africa, lived in San Francisco, worked at Stanford and then settled back to the land she loves to raise a family. Her lineage includes a Revolutionary War soldier, a mill owner “hung near to death” by Yankees, a suffragette leader and a grandfather who helped shape the south as chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. Eve has held public office, impacted education and environmental policy, founded a statewide K-12 writing competition and backed her car onto a fire hydrant after swim practice, about which her kids still tease her. She has been recognized by her alma mater, Smith College, as a “Remarkable Woman” and by Georgia Trend as one of Georgia 100 influential people.

Hoffman has been published by the Georgia Humanities Council, Emory University Center for Ethics, New Southerner, Southern Women’s Review, Five Oaks and online. Her work is included in performances of the Senior Ensemble of The Academy Theatre. Hoffman founded and published three anthologies of Georgia K-12 public school student writing. She has worked with Georgia’s Poet of the Year, North Carolina’s Poet Laureate, as well as internationally honored poets in Paris. She has been a part of numerous intensive poetry workshops and participated in readings at Shakespeare & Co. in Paris.   SHE: Poems of Eve Hoffman and  A Celebration of Healing –paintings by Sal Brownfield and stories by Eve Hoffman of lives impacted by breast cancer are available on Amazon.
