Greetings from Sunny California Can't Post

Hello Everyone,
My name is Rosalind-Marie, and I just want to introduce myself to all of you. I am a teacher, writer, poet, and playwright and I'm new to the Speakeasy forum. I look forward to getting to know all of you through your post and writings. Hopefully, we can exchange dialogue about the projects on which we are currently working, and the writing life in general and how we we must balance it with daily obligations (school, work, marriage/dating, kids, taking care of parents and grandparents, etc.)
I love all types of literature, otherwise I would not be here. I love poetry as well as fiction and playwrighting. Some of my favorite poets are Langston Hughes, June Jordan, Amiri Baraka, Mari Evans, William Faulkner, Sandra Cisneros, the late Adrienne Rich, and the late Joan Didion. Some of my favorite authors are James Baldwin, Alice Walker, Guy Johnson (the son of poet Maya Angelou), Zora Neale Hurston, and Lalita Tademy. My favorite playwrights are: Ntozake Shange, Anna Deavere Smith, Tennesse Williams, James Baldwin, and Suzan-Lori Parks..
Who are some of your favorite poets, writers, and playwrights?
Take care, and always enjoy the writing life,

Favorite writers? I could make a long list, but just a few off the top of my head: Robert Penn Warren, Ann Patchette, Don Delillo, Kim Edwards, Dean Koontz, Ian McEwen, Alice Munro, Updike, and many many more. There are some very good writers here on the speakeasy, as well.
