Do you write poetry or are you primarily a reader?

I'm inspired from time to time to take pen to paper and rant.

Who (if any) are your favorite poets?

Langston Hughes, Maya Angelou, Nikki Giovanni

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

When I see other artist doing there thing it inspires me and motivates me to take pen to paper and write or draw. I need to be around like minded people and display my art and observe them doing their thing.

Where or how did you learn about our group?

Attended and art gallery/spoken word event last week and someone mentioned it. I was checking out what's on meet up that fit my interest then I was this group and I think it is the same one that I was told about. So here I am.


Hello I'm MarLa. I enjoy painting & poetry. Sometimes they go hand in hand. Sometimes one comes to me like wind on a hot summer day and the other left on the table like a plate full of fruit, waiting to be touched. So we create.
