  1. Awesome blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any message boards that
    cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really like to be a part of
    online community where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable individuals that share
    the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let
    me know. Kudos!

  2. First of all, thank you for your interest. What led you to my page? What type of online community are you looking for? Poetry groups? Let me know.

  3. Hello Creatives! I co-host two open mics a month here in the Coachella Valley. First Sundays are held at Koffi in Rancho Mirage from 1-3 and the second one is third Saturdays at The Coachella Valley Art Scene in Cathedral City from 6-9. All creative endeavors are welcome: poetry, prose, visual art, and music.

  4. Good morning Creatives! Join us on June 27th at The Coachella Valley Art Center in Indio for a night of featured readings. Four featured readers: D. Marie Fitzgerald (yours truly) Rose Baldwin, Jake Epstein, and Amie Fisher. Time: 5-7:30. Address: 45140 Towne St. in Indio.

  5. I discovered a new poet who I heard read at Lit Fest in Pasadena. Her name is Linda Dove. She has this great poem about Miss Havisham. I bought her book In Defense of Objects. Check it out.

  8. Here’s a question: do you think poetry should have rules? I’m not talking about the rules for a particular form such as a villanelle or a sonnet, but just in general. Some people think you should never use “ing” words, for instance. I would like to know what you think
