For the Love of Poetry

Poetry Society of Oklahoma celebrated National Poetry Day in OKC on Saturday, October 14, 2023

Met some nice people and enjoyed a few hours of poetry.

No awards for me since I'm contest chair. Exciting to present awards and hear poets read their prize-winning poems.

Booksigning Celebration


I joined 25 regional authors in Bethany as we celebrated 84 authors at Deer Clan Bookstore's 3rd Anniversary. We met, visited with each other and bookstore patrons, enjoyed treats, and sold books.. We loved autographing them on the spot. Busy night!
