So excited to be participating for the first time!

Hello, fellow poetry marathoners! So excited to be joining this illustrious group for the first time. I gather I’m supposed to introduce myself here.

I don’t write poetry often, but I’m looking forward to this challenge. Typically, I seem drawn to create poetry during times of distress. It’s always a therapeutic and revealing process for me, uncovering secrets I didn’t know I harboured. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow uncovers for me as I excavate my wounds – both old and new (and hopefully explore some happier themes along the way).

I’m the founder of Women On Purpose; founder of Watson Labour Lawyers (now Watson Palmer Labour Law) – a social justice firm; President of Muskoka Authors Association; mother of three (the eldest of whom is writing with me in this marathon! Woo hoo!
