Thank you for visiting my site. Writing poetry has been a continual pleasure. It helps me make sense of life. I also enjoy sharing poetry with others and helping them write poems and achieve publication. On this site I post news about upcoming poetry events (including submission opportunities) and poetry classes I teach. I’ve included a page with some sample poems, information on my books, and places where my poems appear in print and online. I hope you find this site helpful. Please use the contact form if you have questions, requests, suggestions or any other type of communication.
