2) Collaborative Poem published on Whistling Fire

This past summer, I embarked on a collaborative writing experiment on my blog which combined several of my various writing communities while I was at Millay Colony, and am pleased that the first of the poems that were created from that journey has found a home! You can see “seven seeds” up at Whistling Fire
