Writing Kin

I share my writing all the time (Exhibit A is this blog) and share with my students, with my writing group, and at various writing marathons etc. Participating in LexPoMo feels like more of a risk although I’ve been doing it long enough now that I don’t fear it as much, but I wrapped up National Poetry Month with an open mic at Coffeetree Books in Morehead that truly made my knees shake. But I stepped up and shared some of the poems from the 2023 LexPoMo that I was particularly proud of: Home SecretsMotherhood Redux, The Motherhood Ritual (a petition to the gods), and Writing Kin.

That day was also very emotional for me as it was the last day I would write with my students. We wrote our final reflections drawing inspiration from these poems. I wrote pages even though none of these poems are new to me. May you find inspiration too.
