I am particularly interested in encouraging people to write. Creativity is an important aspect of a healthy person and I am very supportive of you getting those words out on paper. Recently, I have been editing for a number of budding poets and have found my role of `poetry coach' exhilarating for the client and insightful for me. Although haiku and tanka are my first loves, I am particularly attracted to all short-form poetry (no more than two pages) and, once I have familiarized myself with your modus operandi, I can work to encourage the outflow of poetry and hopefully help you to feel solid about your talents.
