Do you write poetry or are you primarily a reader?

I am primarily a reader, though I do occasionally write.

Who (if any) are your favorite poets?

Robinson Jeffers, Yeats, Frost, Keats, Hopkins, Coleridge, Whitman, Bukowski, Dickinson, Bishop, Eliot, Williams, Stevens, cummings, Dylan Thomas, H.D., and so on ...

What do you see as your primary goal in joining the group?

Reconnect with the world of poetry and make some new friends who are "poetic souls" like me.

Where or how did you learn about our group?

No answer yet


I received my M.A. in English from Cal State Long Beach a decade and a half ago, and after a few years of teaching college English, I transitioned into my current profession -- instructional design.
