I wrote a poetry book! It’s a short collection of poems and lyrical prose I wrote over the the last year and a half based on one-word twitter prompts — and if you sign up for my new newsletter, you’ll get an ebook copy FREE.
The last year and a half has been a journey! The last time you heard from me, I was beginning to write poetry. I was also beginning to get noticeably sick. I really dove into writing as a way to kind of process life with my illnesss (I am bedridden with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, likely as a result of a covid infection — I am one of the many, many disabled by LongCovid). Most of my writing looks at life, faith, and parenting through the lens of disability/chronic illness, and this first book is a small taste of what is to come.
I probably won’t be using this space often (computer time is challenging for me), so I’d love it if you would subscribe to my newsletter. I plan to share (monthly-ish) updates on my writing/publishing, some bits on what I’m reading, and shoutouts/highlights of literary magazines and other writers I love and think you should know about.
First newsletter issue will be sometime in December and include a link to a free copy of Lift the Mask! While you’re here, stop over at my Writing Portfolio page and see some work I’ve had published over the past year. It’s incomplete, but I’m working on it.
