Colgate University Writer's Conference
I applied to the Colgate University Summer Writing Conference Fellowship AND WON!
This week I'm fortunate enough to work with writer Kathleen Ossip in workshop and with dozens of wonderful writers across genres from around the world. I have a whole suite to myself, and there are lots of hills here. I am definitely working out my recovering body with EVERY STEP.
I feel very lucky to be here and fortunate I can concentrate on craft.
The good people at Write About Now held a cypher after
the prelim bouts at the 2018 Women of the World Poetry Slam.
I'm grateful they decided to publish this poem.
"Passive Voice..." is dedicated to Mama Lucille Clifton
and is one of my favorites.
Don't forget to subscribe to their YouTube channel for some beautiful poetry.
The Chambermaid's Style Guide
My first full-length book is out.
More than 30 poems about breakage, suffering, survival and recovery. Though new poems were written especially for this project it features some of my favorite poems like SOFTWATER RINSE and INDICATORS. This is my baby and it is my most complete effort to date. You can only get it from me directly.
