2015 Master Artist Doris Stengel
Doris Stengel, Brainerd award-winning poet, was first published by The Dakota Farmer when she was nine. Later in life, she joined Heartland Poets in Brainerd and was published in many anthologies. She is a member and past-president of the League of Minnesota Poets.
Doris has two books of poetry, Small Town Lines and Arrival and Departure, from which she will read. Her poems reflect our day-to-day world and occasionally a fantasy world that only Doris inhabits. They span the life experience from birth to death and everything in between.
