I am an Iowa City native, now returned after being temporarily anchored in Indianola to study English at Simpson College. As a part of my studies, I engaged in coursework that exposed me to a wide variety of literature, sparking my interest in the art of creative writing—specifically poetry. During my final semester, I wrote original poems and built a portfolio for my senior capstone. This blog began as a means of documenting my creative journey and describing personal reactions to other poets I read along the way.

Now graduated, I intend to continue writing, blogging, and beginning ongoing conversations with other readers and writers.
