Bio: I started blogging as part of the 2014 Mindful Writing Challenge. Those "small stones" were my smallstart. I continued writing haiku through the months of February and March, using prompts from the NaHaiWriMo Facebook page. In April of 2014, I was one of the contributing writers in the Oulipost project, writing a found poem every day, using the daily newspaper as a source text. I continued to participate in found poetry challenges for National Poetry Writing Month in both 2015 and 2016, and have taken several on-line poetry-writing courses through the University of Iowa International Writing Program. I continue to write poetry, despite long dry spells, and welcome you to my website!
