Check out a taste of my fiction at https://www.riotmaterial.com/hunting-in-the-dark/ This is an example of a book I’m writing about a protagonist Joan, who is flawed and a bit crazy. Enjoy!

I’m teaching a poetry writing class at Front Range Community College on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2:30-3:45. By the end of the class, you will have a portfolio of ten poems. I will also teach strategies for publishing your work. The classes tend to be small and personal. By the end of the class, you will have the tools to write good poems and how to publish them!
