A friend of mine made it possible for me to spend a week in this truly magical place! I am very lucky and blessed and in case you didn't know about The Writer's Colony, I wanted to spread the word!

It has been awhile since I've had a chance to "get out there" and share my writing, but I've been invited to an online FB reading May 4th with SpoFest. I'm very excited to join this community and listen to other poets. I've found, when my writing has slowed, listening to others seems to call my own words up again. It's always a gift to listen.
Feel free to join us May 4th 2020 at 7:00 on Facebook Live at: FB event page:https://www.facebook.com/event
