Andrea Dietrich grew up in Iowa and now resides in Utah with a spouse and two cats. She has two grown children and six grandchildren. Having graduated BYU with a Spanish major/ESL minor, she has spent most of her adult life teaching. It wasn't until 2000 that she began writing in earnest and discovering her "niche" as a writer of lyrical poetry. The internet opened up a new world for her, and she has spent two decades now participating in poetry clubs, acting as a judge of poetry contests for various magazines, for the website Shadow Poetry, and for Poetry Soup. 

Ms. Dietrich has won numerous awards, as well as the title Poet of the Year 2008, from the Yahoo group, Poetry For Thought. In addition, she has won prizes from the magazines Lucidity, Bell's Letters, Art with Words, Poets at Work and SP Quill, the magazine for which she wrote grammar and poetry articles as well as movie reviews and for which she acted as poetry editor for the head editor Marie Summers for six years. Many of her poems appeared in Shadows Ink, a yearly published series of chapbooks of award winning poetry as well as in numerous other anthologies. Her short stories appeared in many issues of SP Quill and much of her poetry was published in eight chapbooks (no longer sold online). 

Since coming to Poetry Soup, Ms. Dietrich has been both contest sponsor and winner of numerous contests. In 2010, her poem "Cinder Girl" was first place winner of Soup's International contest (these contests are no longer held).  A song was created from her lyrics "Honeymoon Serenade" ( and two movies have been made featuring the poetry of Andrea Dietrich: "A Tale of Fire and Ice" (a 4 min. Z-Film Fest Project, 2014) and the full length movie "Six Days of Sistine" in which 20 poems of Ms. Dietrichs serve as the thoughts of two characters played by Jamie Campbell Bower and Elarica Johnson (directed by Richard J. Perry, 2019)

It's been a long time since I blogged and I thought April Fools Day would be a good time to talk about my movie pass that costs me only $10 a month because when I first heard of it during Christmas time, I honestly thought my daughter must be joking. A few months later, I was all in. Every month, for only $9.95, I can go into any theater in the United States and watch one movie. (one per day is the unique condition of it). You simply find the movie on your cell phone APP and click on it when you get to the theater. Then you show your movie pass at the ticket counter. (plus you still qualify for the points that go toward free popcorn, etc at places like Cinemark or Cineplex).  As a movie buff, I just thought this was something really nice to share with anybody else who sees movies regularly at the theater. Just going one night a month to a theater, it pays for itself. I generally see two or three a week.

One more interesting thing I learned about today. The LAST time that April Fool's Day fell ON Easter, was back in 1956! I was still a baby. Wow, I have lived more than half a century to see this phenomenon again. Also, Easter and April Fools Day will be happening together again in just 11 more years this time! I wonder what we will all be doing at that time. I hope to still be around here to do another blog on it!! Where will YOU be next time it happens?

BTW, just google if you love movies on the BIG screen the way they were meant to be seen!! It takes about two weeks to get the pass once you have registered.

I don't go to theaters, but this deal appears to be very good. Any catch? Like unsolicited phone calls?

no catch, Rob. When they updated the App, I did not know how to reconnect and had to go to Verizon to have them help me. I'll probably mess up every time they update it!! Will you do it? Thanks for seeing my blog!

Sounds like a good deal... IF there are any theaters near that play a movie you would like to see. I can't remember when I last saw a movie in a theater. I much rather go down to my basement, where I have a windowless room and a projector and watch a movie of my choice there, with food of my choice, too :)

Well, of course not a projector for film reels, but a computer projector that projects whatever is on the computer screen onto the wall. That's how we watch on big screen, much larger than a big flat screen TV :)

Thanks for visiting my blog, Agnes. Projector, huh? Long time since I heard of someone using one of those. I eat whatever i want in movie theaters. I have big purses!!! Also I have netflix at home and I love being in my basement for that as well!
