If facing the paper, your thought is 'I am an artist', you have no clue what to do. If the concepts of your function are, 'I am a shape maker, an entertainer, an expressive symbol collector'...then you have an explicit road map. Edgar Whitney

Poet's Land

To paraphrase Joan Baez, it was a happy April for this happy fool. I loved the focus and intensity of NaPoWriMo and the autumn season of poets in performance at the Madras Street Cafe. The month was drenched in poetry and I find it hard to let go. To keep the momentum going I am taking Joanna Preston's series of classes, Reading for Writing at CPIT, starting soon. Thanks to all who commented and cheered me on in April, it was such fun!


  1. Hey Marisa,
    I enjoyed following your work during NaPoWriMo and look forward to reading more.

  2. Thank you Mariana, that is very kind. I hope to post some new work soon. I have a couple of poems in Takahe 69 if you're interested.

  3. Great! Will check them out.
