If you would like to work with an established poet who knows a variety of poetry styles and strategies, please consider working with me. You can email me at rockfordpoetlaureate@gmail.com.. Here is my general bio. I am Rockford’s first official Poet Laureate.

I enjoy working with older folks and have written chapters in WRITING IN RETIREMENT. Here is a little bio for that.

I hope that the selection of poems will entice you and help you find the mentor you have been looking for. I am open to varied styles, themes, and have helped many writers publish in magazines and their own collections. I am a little old-fashioned and not a whiz with technology. Maybe, just maybe, we might kindred spirits.
