Chicago, IL

Organizer since:

March 7, 2013

How long have you been writing poetry?

10 years or so.

What is your primary goal with poetry?

Expression. Extending language. Playing with complex rhyme. Also jolting readers!

What is your primary goal with joining Chicago Poetry Meetup?

To workshop and meet more poets, chat about poetry, writing and life and in the process become a better poet (and a better person!).

What do you think of work-shopping?

I think it's great. Results can vary, depending on the group of people one has; but with proper guidelines and sincerity a lot can be achieved. Certainly made great friends through writing groups as well.


I am a writer, poet, working on getting my first manuscript of poetry together, as well as trying to complete my first novel. I am also pursuing graduate study and teach full-time, and sit on the board of a non-profit.
