You the Poet

"To participate in one of Rosemerry’s poetry playshops, or to listen to one of her beautiful presentations, is an invitation to revel in your own creativity. She welcomes her audience into a landscape of words with a generous and irrepressible spirit, and speaks with a boundless compassion. Her love of poetry reaches out and connects with her listeners, opening a space with her audience that invites them to consider themselves, and their art, and their world, in new ways. To hear Rosemerry share her poetry is a felt gift. Her listeners cannot escape being touched."
      —Melissa Stacey, co-founder and organizer, Writers and Scribblers Literary Retreat

The Art of the Practice: Poetry Exercises for You to Try

Ever get stumped by a blank white page? One thing I do when this happens is read other people's poetry and look for poems I love. Then, when I stumble on something marvelous, I try to identify what it is that I love so much about that poem and then give myself an assignment. Here are some examples of poems that I love and love to build on.
