About Me!

I am Susan Spilecki,  a poet who teaches writing and communication at MIT and Northeastern University. Living in Japan for two years after college left me with a lifelong love of Japanese arts and culture. Being a lifelong geek has made me fascinated with popular culture and especially feminist icons. I also love to write about flamenco, martial arts, yoga, food and relationships. I believe that poetry should reflect our real daily lives and I aim to look at that from many different directions on this blog.

  1. Hi Susan…I am so grateful you stopped by Grace Notes. I read your About page…and it made me remember a poem I wrote. It uses Japan as a metaphor, but it really is more about my father who was based in Japan during the Korean war…

    I hope you enjoy it, and apologies for what I am certain are ignorances and heavy-handednesses in the use of the metaphors…they fit far more as explanations for childhood traumas than as true comments on the exquisite and tragically beautiful and wonderful nation of Japan

    Much love,
