The past few months, work has consumed so much of my time and even more of my thoughts. I am finally starting the process of emerging from that extreme stress. This past week I wrote a new poem, my first since January, and I work-shopped it tonight in City Hall Poets. I'll share it soon, after I work on the revisions.
Also this past week my husband and I attended a poetry reading at Water Street Books in Exeter. The incredibly talented and lovely poets S Stephanie and Jessica Purdy were two of the featured readers. I'm really glad I was able to make it and hear them read. They both have books soon out from Finishing Line Press, which I am much looking forward to.

So This Is What It Has Come To by S Stephanie
Also, S has her own website here.
They are doing a book release party April 11th at Portsmouth Book & Bar. That will be fun.
