Susan Hi, Anny! Thanks for adding me to your list. I have been working on a long essay about the Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone in very recent poetry by American women. Do the myths figure in your poems? Susan J

Anne Hi Anny,
Nice to meet you. May I recommend a wonderful poetry collection which you might enjoy--and no, it is not mine! It's HOW TO MAKE A MUMMY, by Michael Smith who holds MFA from Notre Dame.
I do, however, have a short story collection just out, WHAT YOU LONG FOR, which I will also recommend. I'll check out your poetry, too!
Happy Writing,
