The Geezer Gallery is a unique 501c3 non-profit art organization devoted to celebrating Master Level senior artists and providing “art as therapy” programs, giving voice through art to seniors in our community. Our creativity programs for seniors are designed to enable brain-cell growth, dexterity and an opportunity for personal self-expression.
This project of The Geezer Gallery was a workshop for LGBTQ seniors. The workshop helped them to capture the important times in their life in creative ways. Below are photos of me facilitating the first section, and of the banner created for the project.

Wild Planet Radio, low power FM radio station featuring the LGBTQ community in the greater Portland OR/Vancouver WA area. I was invited to read there several times. It no longer exists but was a beloved institution in its day.
The Chaos Poetry Review published 8 of my poems in September 2014. I can no longer find them online. My thanks for their kind words about my poems:
“With her eight poems, Emily Newberry weaves a web of transcendent introspection, showing us the beauty in our own ruminations. Each of her poems is a rung on a ladder that leads to brilliance. “Even the little memories have a sort of knife in their hands, carving out a fine relief,” she says in “Shining On,” like the fine, elegant relief her words carve into our minds.”
