About Sam Kauffman
(Show Details...)
Bloggers Photo

Hello!  My name is Sam Kauffman.  Knowing what to write for a bio is probably more difficult than writing poetry itself so I'll give you some of the highlights.

I was born and raised in Seattle, WA.  Graduated from the University of Washington with degrees in Music and English- if one major was good, two were better - right?

I am married, to my college sweetheart, have two boys, three grandchildren and one Wheaten Terrier, Mr. Paddy, a show dog - pure octane on four paws! - and now live in California.

Have been writing poetry since college - not sharing how long that has been - along with music - seven albums released  (played on Christian radio) - eight chapbooks of poetry, a series of eight faith based children's stories, three children's books, two full length books, short stories, eighteen one woman musical scripture dramas and a variety of music based programs for churches, youth and women.

Both the music and the poetry have been published.  (I am exhausted looking at that list I might add!)

As you might have guessed I am a Christian singer, dramatist, songwriter, author, retreat leader and "actress,"  that I put in parentheses!

Have been very blessed to have had a music ministry for over twenty years - yikes! has it been that long - traveling coast to coast and sometimes internationally.

While working harder than I have ever worked in my life, I am shocked, amazed and grateful for the reponse this writing and composing - not possible without a lot of heavenly help - has received with numerous awards over the years for both lyrics and poetry. 

When not writing - when does that happen? - I love to ski, walk, garden, cook, create needwork, train our show dogs and be with family and friends.

Well, there you have it in a nutshell - seems to be a rather large nutshell.

I am so grateful for the work of Poetry Soup and all of the "soupers" out there for creating a safe place of encouragement and a community of poets who support one another.

It is an honor to be among an international community of such talented and gracious poets and writers.

Exciting News

Blog Posted:6/21/2022 5:03:00 PM

In December 2021 the California Writers Club San Francisco/Peninsula branch put out an anthology - Fault Zone Reverse.  There are thirty-seven writers represented with only six poets two of whom only had two poems in the anthology.  I was honored and blessed to be among the two poets with two entries.

CWC, founded by Jack London over one humdred years ago, just announced that the anthology won the Anthology Division of the Independent Press Awards and was one of four finalist in the National Indie Excellence Awards.  In NIEA the top winners are the finalists.

These contests are open to international entries.  Entries were received from US, Canada, Australia, Germany, Ireland, Jordan, New Zealand and Switzerland.

My winning poems were Ocean and The Tempest.  Oceana can be found in the second volume  of the PS anthology It's Still Poetry, Volume Two.

This is an amazing honor that swimply put would not have been available to me had it not been for the support of my fellow poets who journey with me in "the soup!"

Thank you!

Wow! That is exciting news Sam. You must be over the moon. And a double whammy too with both of your poems in the anthology. That's not all of course. As I type I note that your poem Fragments of Eden is at the Top spot in the new poems' list too. I raise my glass to you. Cheers - Gary

Dear friend heartfelt gratitude for your congratulations. CWC is an amazing organization that, like PS, has nurtured me and many other writers. These awards were like hitting a walk off home run with the bases loaded, bottom of the ninth, last batter, two strikes! I am so glad you like these two poems. They seem to have a life of their own! Grace and peace John!
