I have been writing poetry for 20 years and it has helped me to get thru many bad times in my life. I don't belong to a poetry club, but I have entered contests and had poems published. I am going back to college, online, to try to get a B/A in English because I want to give some creedence to my writings. Currently I am trying to write a book about my deceased daughter and her 18+ years on kidney dialysis
when lines run thru your mind, write them down right away, because sometimes, if they slip away, you can't recover them. Also try to let your heart, your mind and your hand form a connection, and remember, writers block happens. I have read some of the writings you have posted and you are very talented.
I would be very interested in connecting with both of you. I'm a former English Professor (now taking time off to be a stay-at-home mother). My work has appeared in many literary magazines. I've taught poetry classes, and I've also participated in various poetry reading groups.
I'm also interested in the healing aspects of writing poetry. Have you read Poetic Medicine by John Fox? It's a very good book on that subject.
I would be interested in what kind of poetry you like to read? Who are your favorite poets? Please PM me if you would like to visit . . .
This is so exciting. I am an old woman, who visits her daughter and family 3x a week, but have not much else going on. I would love for someone to read some of the things I have written, as most of it, like all writings, come from the heart and soul. I would love to meet both of you ladies, but I have no vehicle so it would have to be near to where I live, on Emerald park Drive.
