I asked a handful of poets if I could highlight their work in the month of February. But alas, the plans of mice and men and half-assers like me. So, I’m amending my earlier design; now we’re going to do this thing in the blustery month of March. My goal in this endeavor is to introduce you to a diverse group of people all committed to the furtherance of poetry, or as I like to say – ‘the common good.’ I know for a fact they’re all on Facebook so if you’d like to leave a comment here that’s great, but feel free to send them a message over there as well.
First up is a brilliant new friend of mine – Joy Roulier Sawyer. Joy loves her gardener friends, and continues to be delighted by the occasional glimpse of a random eggplant. She teaches at Lighthouse Writers Workshop in Denver. I first met Joy at a dinner party and there I discovered she studied with Galway Kinnell. I admit I hung on every word she said that evening…as I found myself hanging on these too. Thank you, Joy!
