Cendrine Marrouat

Hello everyone!

My name is Cendrine Marrouat and I am a French-born Canadian photographer, poet, and the multi-genre author of 30+ books. In 2019, I founded the PoArtMo Collective and co-founded Auroras & Blossoms with David Ellis. A year later, we launched PoArtMo (Positive Art Month and Positive Art Moves) and created the Kindku / Pareiku, two forms of poetry.

I am also the creator of the Sixku, Flashku, and Reminigram.

I'm interested in meeting fellow writers to exchange ideas and build a support system.

I've written on and off for most of my life, but have really worked on the craft of my poetry during the last 8 or 9 years. I've had one chapbook published and another is in the pipeline. I'm lucky to be in a great critique group. I'd love to find a group here to talk about poetry and poets.

Most recently, those efforts include InBrief: a daily short-poem blog, stories contributed to Thrill of the Hunt: Cabin Fever and The Gathering anthologies, and poems in three of the four volumes in the Poets Speak Anthology. I am anxious to join a group to critique, encourage, and challenge me to submit more stories and poems.

Hi. I've been a freelance and assignment writer for Christian, educational, and indie publishers for many years so have placed a few dozen books and hundreds of short manuscripts, but my primary focus now is poetry - especially poems that bring insight, musicality, fresh imagery, interesting perspectives, or something new. In judging a recent poetry competition, however, I was dismayed by the numerous rants offering no solutions. Poetry has power! It can be a powerful, beautiful instrument of change simply by moving people and helping them see a view or delight they had not yet noticed.

I co-host a podcast about pencils (The Erasable Podcast) in which we talk about writing, music, a little of everything that is even tangential to pencils. While I have my PhD in philosopher, writing is my true love. I took poetry workshop and advanced poetry workshop in college, but I have never taken a grad level course in writing.
