         It’s been a while since I’ve had a blog post to share but all the reasons are great. There have been so many exciting things happening! I've been back at Troy Makers Market with my paintings, jewelry and more. Over the weekend, I performed at the last ever Bea...

What does a regular day look like for me? I did a workshop at Hudson High School and among the questions asked, the students really wanted to know what a day looks like for a career poet. I answered by telling them about my week and all the poetry happenings in it i.e....

Last year around this time I decided to take on a challenge to write 52 essays for the year.  It was spearheaded by the beautiful writer genius mind Vanessar Martir. At the time I was excited to try writing essays because I had a blog that was irregular and neglected....
