If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ve probably already read the poems featured in my “memoir chapbook”. However, I’ve gotten several new followers in the last few weeks (WELCOME, by the way — and thank you!!), so I thought I’d announce that my “Poetic Memoir” has been featured at Poetic Bloomings.
I’ve posted the link on the “Publications” page here on my blog, or you can go directly to Poetic Bloomings to read the 15-poem collection.
Thank you, all, for your support and encouragment.
And a big “shout out” to Walt Wojtanik and Marie Elena Good for their tireless efforts to support poetry as they host Poetic Bloomings with prompts, interviews, lessons on poetry forms, and special projects like this Memoir Chapbook project. Thank you!
