After a while

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.

Learning the Names by Jessica Purdy

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.
