Lee Chottiner

Bio for 2023

After 30-plus years as a journalist, Lee Chottiner has returned to his real passion: poetry. He draws from the world around him, and sometimes his own family history, for inspiration. His work has appeared in October Hill, Poetry Super Highway, Poesis, Pokeberry Days, Brink Zine, Jittereview and Weelunk. He lives in Louisville with his wife, daughter, and basset hound.

Reason for signing up:

I am taking the Poetry Gauntlet at the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning. Some of my classmates encouraged me to enroll, saying this is a supportive community of poets, which is exactly what I always look for.
