Discover your own message through poetry and journaling workshops.
Poetry: I’m the author of three chapbooks of poetry from Pudding House Publications: After the Barn Door Opened (2007), Nosegay (2002) and Pinned to the Corkboard (2000), as well as Stolen Joy: Healing After Infertility and Infant Loss from Icarus Books (1993).
At The New Earth Granary in Berkeley Springs I teach poetry workshops where students learn tips that poets use to get started writing their own poems. See “Poetry Workshops” for more information.

Journaling: I started using my journal primarily as an outlet for emotions and the place where I wrote the rough drafts of my poems. It wasn’t until I discovered Journal to the Self by Kathleen Adams, M.A. that I realized there were actual exercises for journaling that expanded how I used the journaling process. The exercises forced me to think about things that I hadn’t considered or in ways that I hadn’t considered in the past.
I am a Certified Instructor in the Journal to the Self curriculum, taught through the Center for Journal Therapy (http://www.journaltherapy.com/) in Denver, Colorado. I will be teaching the curriculum in a variety of settings in the Baltimore-Washington community and in Berkeley Springs, WV.
