I can't tell you how exciting, humbling, nerve-wracking, and truly wonderful it has been to get some of the feedback I'm getting to the poetry I'm writing. It's been my writing focus for the past year. It's mostly political, though my recently-published poem was a portrait piece. I call it "Ninety-Six," though it was published … Continue reading More Poetry Published!
As we come out of this dark Covid cloud, I'm super excited to be out and about, as more things open. (I'm looking forward to when Maryland Writers' Association, Frederick Chapter, will resume meeting in person...) Anyway, we just went on our first airplane trip (Do I sound like I'm five?) this month, out to … Continue reading Still travelin’

I recently wrote an article for the Urbana Town Courier, about the Frederick Chapter of Maryland Writers' Association hitting one year since we were chartered. It's been a privilege to serve as President of the Chapter since July. I'm looking forward to all of the things we have planned for the next year, in programming, … Continue reading I’m Excited as MWAFrederick Celebrates One Year!
Gosh, summer has me so far behind that I didn't even mention that in July I became President of the Frederick Chapter of MWA. Here's some of what's going on there... In two days, the Chapter will be hosting a reading and open mic night at Sky Stage in Frederick. Short article about it: http://towncourier.com/urbana/mwa-hosts-open-mic-at-sky-stage/. We'll … Continue reading MWA Happenings
