Welcome

 Welcome to my blog. Here I will provide writing prompts and poetry forms to help jump start a new project or rekindle a current one. Most prompts will apply to poetry, but some will focus on the elements of short stories and longer fiction.  I will write book reviews and post others' reviews to highlight the craft of both newly published and long established poets. I will try to provide excerpts of the poems and audio of the poets reading their own work.  I will share some news and articles from my local poetry community in Orange County and from the wider writing community. If you know of an upcoming deadline for a contest or publication or of a reading or other event, let me know so that I can spread the word.  I hope you will join me in establishing a supportive place to improve our own writing and praise others and create discussions that inspire one another.  Check back regularly for new posts and updates. Good luck, get writing and see you soon!
