Hi, I'm looking for an organized, critique group working with poetry.  Some experimental.  But, not foresaking some kind of thread. A supportive group, not a tear-apart group.  Interested in the craft of poetry.  

I'm old.  71.  I live with many animals out in the sage brush at the base of a mountain.  My horse is 17 hands tall.  Born in my barn.  She's 7 now.  I have an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard.  Most recently have been taking classes with Xavier Cavasos.  I have published in many small press journals off and on since the 1980s.  I used to do Slams in Seattle.  Now, it's all I can do to keep my geriatric goat alive.

These days I am writing modified prose poems with stanzas for breathing room to unpack the energy.  I'm looking at sentence structure to increase the energy.  Right now I live in the snow.  In summer wild fires smoke us out.  I want to write pieces without excessive lineation.  Pieces where the writing carries its own.

I'm on my last set of revisions before querying the first installment of a YA fantasy series, but I tend to distract myself with flash fiction and creative nonfiction.  I'm in search of a writing group that is open and honest with critiques.  I've attended in-person writing groups and online classes in which everyone shies away from constructive criticism, but I'd really appreciate some!

I've worked in the wellness and education fields and have always enjoyed writing as a contribution to the work.  I'm currently exploring fiction writing and looking for a group to connect with peers and stretch my skills.

I took a few creative writing classes in my undergrad and I fell inlove with the art form. Being able to express myself through the art of creative word play has been so healing for me. I have some poems and flash fiction published in my college's creative writing journal, The Watermark. I am looking to read other writers pieces, engage in some prompts and critique. Flash fiction and poetry are my mediums.
