One Thing I Always Wanted to do...

There's one thing I always wanted to do with my poetry, a project that I've always wanted to start but could never find the time or the funds etc. I wanted to make a creative video for one of my poems.

Now, I'm not sure which poem and I don't have a solidified vision yet but I know this is what I want to do. I think crossing mediums (poetry and film or even poetry and photography) would be a really creative way to connect with people.

Just a thought!

I'm TERRIBLE at This!

I don't forget about this site, I'm just terrible at social media and website upkeep. I'm working on a lot of projects which include two chapbooks and a full length poetry collection (which will hopefully, eventually, find homes!) More info on those to come.

For now! I'd like to say I'm feeling really good. I'm in a great place, productivity is slow and steady which is more than I could say a few months ago. I'm feeling really excited about the new poems I'm writing and  I can't wait to find an avenue to share them.

Thanks for reading and sorry for the slow upkeep. I'll try harder to be more of a presence/

Hey, hey, hey!

Check out the rest of the issue as well! It gives a platform to survivors to tell their stories.

All the best,

Depression, Grief and a Lack of a Muse

So, I decided to clean this site up and start fresh. I'm doing that a lot in life lately--uprooting the old to make way for the new. It hasn't inspired me yet though. I've been feeling a little down, grieving--I'll get to that later though.

I'm going to post links to my poems soon (the ones that are online, at least) as for poem activity I haven't been very active. I've been going through the motions this year. My bipolar disorder and anxieties have been really menacing. I have a few submissions out, most of which are from the past month. So hopefully something comes out of those.

My nana passed away on June 10th, 2017 and it's been really difficult. I've been grieving hard. I've been journaling about it, even wrote a poem for the funeral. Speaking of that poem, it was so important for me to write it. I had a lot I needed to say and I speak best in poems, otherwise I just ramble. I miss her so much.

I'm hoping I find my muse. I have a few projects that are brewing in my brain. Hopefully they'll come to fruition. I'm going to be much more active on this site from now on, as this will be my primary sanctuary.

That's all folks!
