Introduce yourself or your writing.

I am an new writer who has come to creative writing late in life. I have been an avid "reader" of all forms of creative expression for my whole life, but only took up my pen lately - after a life working and writing for a profession.

When did you first begin to appreciate poetry?

Recently I discovered The Sonnets, and have read them over many times. They are so beautiful and expressive.

Who is your favorite poet and/or your favorite poem?

My favorite poet is Shakespeare - the Sonnets are clearly the best. I have not read a lot of other "poetry" but have many works of literature that have poetic qualities. So beauty of the written word is more nearly what I think of when I think of poetry.

Are you interested in an individual or small-group creative writing retreat? Or both?

No answer yet


Hi! I am a person to has come to poetry - and creative writing - late in life, but it is of great importance to me now. I hope to share some of my writing with others who are also committed to creative work.
