Sandra Chaff is an attorney who clings to her love of the word even when that love is not translated by her into poetry for long periods of time. She is one of the original members of the poetry group which began meeting 10 years ago this December under the memorable and lyrical designation of "the Monday night poetry group." Sandra has had poems published in Poet Lore and Six, and is interested in the fact that their group finally is managing to have a reading (qua group) after all these years and an edgy reading at that!
