Do you write poetry or are you primarily a reader?


Who (if any) are your favorite poets?

Geez, I hate this name game, but here are a few: Rumi, Pablo Neruda, Eduardo Galeano (poetic prose), Sharon Olds, Patricia Smith, Anne Sexton, Walt Whitman, T.S. Eliot, Shakespeare, Taylor Mali, Saul Williams, Marty McConnell, and ... well, I could be here all day.

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

Inspiration and fellowship

Where or how did you learn about our group?



Hey there. In a different world (South Florida) I was a slam mistress. I competed at local, regional and national team poetry competitions. It might be cool to get back on the mic. It'll definitely be cool to be around poets and hear their work.
