From my very first post I wanted to pay homage to the speech which inspired the title of my blog, Ain't I a Woman? by Sojourner Truth. Such a beautiful speech, such a beautiful name, such a beautiful woman. It is one of my favorite pieces. I strive to emulate this style in my own work. Poetic and powerful. Honest and unafraid. Memorable. And I like brevity. It too is beautiful. This is the standard I wish to be held to as I explore the question with you ~ ain't I a writer?

Upcoming Readings

    As The Widows' Handbook continues an ambitious book tour across America, I will be participating in another reading with several of the other poets featured in the anthology. That stop will be at Gibson's Bookstore in downtown Concord, New Hampshire on Thursday June 26th. Every one of the readings for this wonderful book is different, but they are always moving, in sometimes unpredictable ways. We'd love to see you there.

at the invitation of the Poetry Society of New Hampshire for the summer reading series. The reading takes place Sunday evening June 29th at six o'clock.

    The setting alone will be worth the trip...
