From California, USA
I recently obtained my Master's Degree in Creative Writing (MFA) with National University. I'm a poet, writer, wife and mom. For me, poetry has been my budding voice, a tool used in opening Pandora's box.... "What a vast array of beauty lies in the words of the poet, words to read and create, a single breath that lives on even after death." (S. Wilde)
Truth! Being able to get to the heart of anything, the truth of the matter inspires me. I realize poetry, as with any other writing's are works in progress. It's the ability to adapt, change, continually rearrange our voice is where I find poetry's beauty. It takes a certain strength of character, a honest inward look and those who aren't afraid to bare this revelation, I believe genuinely inspire a change in others.
