Biographical / Historical

Tina Darragh, a local poet, has writing poetry since the late 1960s. Born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Darragh moved to Washington D.C. to attend Trinity University. While at Trinity, Darragh became interested in writing poetry and met many other local writers. Darragh would meet up with these writers at Mass Transit and later at Folio, local community bookshops. Some of the poets she worked with include, Diane Ward, Joan Retallack, and P. Inman. These poets came together to form the east coast branch of the Language group of poetry. This style of poetry emphasizes the reader’s role in the work. Darragh currently lives in Greenbelt, MD with her husband P. Inman.
