I've been writing and creating stories since I was twelve.  I love reading poetry as well as writing it and have had a number of poems published over the years.  I've also had a couple of short stories published in Canadian childrens publications.  I'm also an artist and a lover of nature and animals. 

 


Hopes Of Springs Return Poetry Contest

Blog Posted:1/14/2023 4:46:00 PM

If you're like me, you're already burned out on winter.  I am looking forward to spring and getting outside for some sun, again.  My contest, "Pen A Rictameter, Hopes Of Springs Return Poetry Contest" is now open for entries.

ML, I have had totally enough of winter here in Canada, so Spring is sounding pretty darn good, Constance
