I think of myself as a woman-poet entrepreneur. In addition to doing my own writing and directing the West Chester University Poetry Center and Poetry Conference, I edit an online journal of formalist poetry by women, Mezzo Cammin, www.mezzocammin.com, and I founded The Mezzo Cammin Women Poets Timeline Project, which will eventually be the largest database of women poets in the world.
