Profile Information

Are you an author, publisher or future writer?
Eileen Albrizio is Connecticut writer of poetry and prose as well as a freelance proofreader and editor. She was born in Hartford, CT in 1963, where she still lives today. Her works have appeared in numerous literary publications, including the Common Ground Review and the Underwood Review. She is the author of three volumes of poetry: Messy on the Inside, Rain – Dark as Water in Winter, and Perennials: New & Selected Poems, which was nominated for the 2008 CT Book Award. On the Edge, a recitation of her poetry on CD, was produced in 2003. A two-time winner of the GHAC Individual Artist Fellowship for poetry, she has also penned several plays, three novels, including the soon to be released Without Mercy, and a compilation of short fiction. Her one-act verse-play, Rain, was honored as one of the top twenty best-written plays of 1997 by Writer's Digest. Albrizio has taught poetry and creative writing in several colleges and cultural institutions as well as the York Correctional Institute, Connecticut’s maximum-security prison for women, under the creative writing program made famous by best-selling author Wally Lamb.

In 2005, Albrizio left a twelve-year career as a radio news host and broadcast journalist. Nine of those twelve years were spent working for National Public Radio and its Connecticut affiliate, WNPR in Hartford, CT. During her broadcasting career, her newscasts, spot news stories and featured stories were repeatedly awarded first-prize honors from the Associated Press and the Society of Professional Journalists.

Albrizio graduated from the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, and then went on to earn her BFA in Theatre from Central Connecticut State University as well as her MA in English from the same university. In addition to her writing and teaching, Albrizio assists her husband, Wayne Horgan, who is a CT Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. The two have owned and operated Heroes & Hitters, a comic book store in Rocky Hill, CT, since 1989.
My Books..
Messy on the Inside was published by Ye Olde Font Shoppe Press in 1998. Albrizio's first book of poetry, it consists of 60 poems written entirely in formal verse. Utilizing such traditional forms as the English sonnet, pantoum, villanelle, sestina and haiku, this book spotlights Albrizio's ability to master form without losing the poem's accessibility. From the success of this book, Albrizio created an acclaimed formal verse workshop.

Rain - Dark as Water in Winter was published by Ye Olde Font Shoppe Press in 2001. This book consists of a one-act play written in verse, as well as 30 poems written in traditional forms. The one-act play, Rain, was honored by the Writer’s Digest as one of the best written one-act plays of 1997. The two-character play focuses on the cycle of an emotionally abusive relationship between Rain and her lover, Perfidy. The play has a profound iambic rhythm, while the rhyme, although consistently placed, is only subtly heard.

Perennials: New & Selected Poems marks Albrizio’s break from traditional forms. It was published by Ye Olde Font Shoppe Press in 2007. Although it includes some of her most well received poems from her previous two books, it also consists of over 30 new poems that are largely written in free verse or in forms of her own creation. She continues to teach poetry workshops, but has since added a segment on applying the rhetorical devices used in formal verse to free-verse writing. The Greater Hartford Arts Council and the New Boston Fund have honored with excellence several free-verse poems that were later included in the first chapter of this book.
Perennials: New & Selected Poems was nominated for the 2008 CT Book Award.

On the Edge (Audio CD) was produced in 2003 with the help of a Poetry Fellowship from the Greater Hartford Arts Council. This audio collection, featuring the voice of Eileen Albrzio, consists of 20 selected poems from her three books of poetry.

Hi Eileen. Thank you for contacting me. I've gone to one Saturday meeting earlier in the year. The website and membership procedure seems to have changed since then. Glad I finally became a member a few weeks ago.

Hi Eileen-

My first novel is being submitted this month to Amazon.Kindle and I am very excited. I loved your profile and will discuss proofing my next book with you in March 2013. Thank you so much for offering your services and I hope to meet you some time early next year.

Thanks again, Dawn

From one flower to another! I too, like to edit. I work with ETS, grading TOEFL tests. Rather frustrating for an editor mentality, since we only score, and do not make any comments or corrections.

Hello Eileen,
Thank you for friending me. This medium is new to me, I'm an equine artist and have only dreamed of this venture. So ... I'm really looking forward to the meeting in May.
Thanks again, Naia
