Hi! I am a poet, editor, workshop leader, and host for several poetry events on Long Island. I am the author of 6 poetry collections, most recently 24 in 24, a poetry marathon collection (all 24 of the 2020 poetry marathon poems plus one from the previous day and another from hours after the marathon ended). I have written a poem-a-day for over 17 years. Writing a poem-an-hour is an amazing adventure! After all, sleep is overrated.
