I am a dedicated, published poet with an MFA in Creative Writing (Poetry) from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Poetry is a grace. Poetry is a gift. It can change the way we see the world. It can help to understand the questions that baffle us all. It can help us celebrate, rage, grieve and ponder. Poetry can create music from the sound and texture of language. It can help us explore life and see beauty in the the ordinary. I want to make literature and writing adventurous and vastly enjoyable. I want to share my endless enthusiasm for the remarkable universe of contemporary authors. Writing calls me, and has done so since I was 17. Writing can give us comfort, encouragement, validation and fulfillment. It can give us the tools to communicate our deepest feelings.
