Much of my recent poetry has been written since I joined the Rehoboth Beach Writer's Guild. Highly accomplished instructors like Gail Comorat and Ethan Joella helped me get my footing. Additionally the Coastal Writers, a workshop group that has been around more than 30 years, consists of a band of merry poets whose advice has been invaluable. I owe them, especially Irene Fick, Sherry Chappelle, and Jim Bourey. Special thanks to Linda Blaskey for her most kind encouragement.
