Movers and Shakers - Joseph Glaser

There are some who are
And, then, there are some who are not

Joseph (“Joe”) Glaser, educated in engineering, physics and math, most of Joe’s career centered on computer systems management.  After retiring in 2008, he “re-purposed” himself towards the liberal arts, writing poetry and traveling a lot. His poems and travel photos first appeared in The Journal, printed by Northwestern University’s ILR/OLLI program, then the online Front Porch Review, Decades Review and Muses’ Gallery of Highland Park Poetry. Since 2013, his poems and photos have also been published in: (1) multiple-themed print collections of the Journal of Modern Poetry, winning best modern poem prize and Pushcart nomination in JOMP-16; (2) Vols. 2, 3, 4 and 5 of Distilled Lives, printed by the Illinois State Poetry Society; and (3) the printed East on Central, A Journal of Arts and Letters for 2017 through 2021.
