Steeple Street Poets
Cape Cod
First chapbook, "A Woman's Heart," was published in 2014. I was a featured reader for National Poetry Month at the Wellfleet Library that year, and this year I am a featured reader at the Brewster Ladies' Library for NaPoMo. I'm a member of the Steeple Street Poets, Guyer Barn Poets and Scargo Hill Poets (new group!). I was the feature for Provincetown's Writers' Voice Cafe in July, and was recently interviewed on Seekonk Cable TV for Deb Hoch's "A Woman's Outlook." I've won several prizes for my poetry, including WOMR's Outermost Poetry Contest in 2014 (2nd place) judged by Marge Piercy, as well as the Katherine Lee Bates Poetry Contests, and Veterans For Peace. Published in over 17 publications nationally and internationally.
