Life long poet and nature writer feminista. Looking for fellow wild spirited ones to explore our native tongues.
I only write poetry. I do not write every day. I usually need inspiration. Some of favorite poets include Rachel McKibbons, Andrea Gibson, Tony Gloeggler, Maria Gillan, Ethelbert Miller, Rudy Francisco and Rosemary Trommey.
I am primarily a poet, with fiction(al?) aspirations.
I've been writing a lot of speculative fiction lately, along with poetry and academic work.
I'm looking for a group that's honest but supportive, with folks who've had some success but want more, who have a lot to learn and a lot to teach.
I am quite fond of reading and writing. I've journaled for more than half the amount of years I've been traversing my Life's learning journey. Been kind of in need of some motivation lately though. Really have enjoyed reading, learning, coming to be acquainted with the world by means of words; shared by speaking, reading, hearing, etc.
I did write a book. Got it all pulled together and listed online for sale among the recent years. It be composed of a story (that's a poem) with illustrations and little life advices basically. It's a coloring book, with writing and a small story at the beginning. Have thought of maybe revising it a wee bit with maybe the help of a good agent or individual with the skill of helping me do that. Hope to get it some more attention and gain the priceless gift of it helping others.
The name of the book is, "Learn to Live a Life You Love" and that be the basic topic of my book's content.
Want to connect with other writer's, and build greater connections to the world in happy great ways... some involving writing and such ;-)
Sall for now, yo :-) Best warm wishes to all

I write primarily about my family history and about the Holocaust. Lately I've been focusing on essays for the adult market and novels in verse for middle grade and young adults. In a writing group I'm looking for kindred writers who have a feel for narrative fueled by historical research and oral traditions. I have an MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts and am the author of some 40 books, 200 magazine articles, two poetry chapbooks, a forthcoming novel in verse and an about-to-be-contracted biography in verse, about 10 short stories, and 15 essays.
I have had the great fortune to publish one book of poetry, What I Have I Offer With Two Hands (Cascade, 2019), but the writing and revising was completed pretty much in isolation, and I believe that it would've been better under the encouragement and criticism of a community of writers. I did not go through the MFA route, so I'm not even sure what healthy, helpful writing communities look like, but I know it's something I want. I work full-time, and I take being a husband/father seriously, so carving out writing time is difficult. So, a group that recognized that kind of difficulty would be helpful, too. I guess I'm just looking for a group of writers who love what they do and want to encourage others love what they do.
I've been writing poetry for a few years now, but just recently started publishing individual poems, and I'm currently working on a collection/Chapbook. Much of my poetry and vignettes navigate connections between the cosmos, consciousness, and the human experience through the lens of my PhD (applied math/stats) research, as well as my personal experiences and challenges with Asperger's syndrome, mental health, and substance abuse.
I'm eager to learn from more experienced writers and expand my repertoire. That being said, I also simply enjoy analysis and discussion of classical and contemporary poetry.
I am a high school English and Creative Writing teacher. I have taught for one decade in local public schools, five years of which primarily served low-socioeconomic students. I enjoy dark literature: Sylvia Plath, Edgar Allan Poe, Charlotte Perkins Gilman. I'm also a fan of true crime anything- podcasts, documentaries, novels, etc. I am a mother to three children, two large dogs, one overweight cat, and a fluctuating population of fish. I am currently working on my master's degree in English, as well.
I'm feeling for routes through a sprawling landscape of documentary fiction and other disciplines such as memoir, history, three-dimensional objects on exhibit, and performance. The broad topics might include diaspora, genocide, mothers and daughters, secrets and lies, and monuments, memories, and memorials.
