"Love in Transition" poetry evening is food for thought

When Northland Prism and the Duluth Poetry Chapter had the same idea and approached each other about a poetry event, they wanted to expand some of the ideas of love we're inundated with on Valentine's Day.

The brainstorming sessions that followed brimmed with love: of community, of environment, romantic love, platonic love, self-love. But it also overflowed into conversations about transitions, including those small moments when relationships change.

The result is Love in Transition, poetry reading, workshopping, snacks and an open mic, this Sunday evening at Blush.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
