What is your experience with the arts?

My father was an artist (a painter), and my mother loved music so I grew up with the visual arts (friends and family). I almost got a degree in English literature but wanted to live in Spain so I chose espanol. I've been writing poetry all my life.

What do you hope to get out of this group?

I would like to meet other people who are interested in poetry. Like any poet I would like feedback on my poetry, and I'd like to read the work of others.

What do you think are some guidlines for making critisicm useful to a writer?

Respect and sensitivity toward the artist, thoughtfulness from the reader.


I am a technophobe who's been having trouble signing up! (No photo!) I am female, in my 50's, have a PhD in Spanish literature and am married. I teach Spanish and am originally from NC.
