I keep a Poetry Notebook and I keep Journals

I recently published a poem in the NAMI Mercer newsletter for January 2016. I am really looking forward to publishing my first Chapbook. I need 25 poems and so far I have close to 20 poems written and typed in a file on my laptop. I keep Journals and I write a lot. I want to get a chocolate Shit-zu when my older cats die. I feel like I’ve been so blessed to have had the experience I had taking Edi Giunta’s Memoir class for two semesters and following her on Twitter and liking her recommended Facebook pages. Hands down sharing from both of my memoirs at Memoirfest has to be the best thing I’ve ever done. If I could have I would’ve taken Capstone with Edi and just wrote and wrote.
