Summer 2011

Since finishing the Tacoma Poet Laureateship term for 2010-2011 in late Spring, I've been resting on my laurels and regrouping my energies from copious volunteer and community service poetry work I have done over the past couple years to recharge my writer's batteries, clear my poetry plate, and creatively convalesce.

I will be leaving for my Hedgebrook Writer's Retreat for the 2011 residency award I won. I set out next month to stay in a private cottage on Whidbey Island with a dozen other visiting women writers from around the WORLD, all having been honored with an award to attend the esteemed retreat and unplug from the day to day grind to honor my gift of poetry. I will spend the rest of the summer writing and working on my next book, which to this date remains untitled.
