Did you know I also write poetry? I started writing creatively while living on a mountain in the Blue Ridge mountains of Western North Carolina. I was at an 8-week long letterpress printing workshop when my instructor encouraged my whole class to write a poem for our first broadside. To be honest, I resisted because it felt way out of my comfort zone to do so. Had it not been for my instructor’s persistent, gentle encouragement, I would not be the poet I am today. I will occasionally use this platform to post my poetry and/or share links to work that has been published in literary magazines/blogs.
Here are links to my recently published work. Enjoy!
