About Ilene Millman...Ilene Millman

Ilene Millman writes poems about memories, mud, music, making bread, modern times— the array of observation that captures her attention. Her first poetry book, Adjust Speed to Weather, was published in 2018. Millman’s poems have been published or are forthcoming in print and online journals including Nell, Journal of New Jersey Poets, the New Verse News, Connecticut River Review, Potomac Review and Healing Muse, and included in anthologies such as She Persists, and Forgotten Women.

Before retiring, Millman worked for more than 35 years as a speech/language therapist teaching students who learn differently. She published two therapy games designed to improve language skills. Millman volunteers for Rock Steady Boxing, an exercise program for people with Parkinson’s and as assessor for her county Literacy Volunteers program.
