Not 100% sure what to write here… but I’m going to try to be as personal as possible.
My name is Anna, and I’m an environmental scientist working in New York City. I swim, write, enjoy a good beer tour and exploring my adopted home of Brooklyn, NY.
Poetry is something that I do to understand and to express what I experience. I like to write because I hope that my words can help others make sense of their world, like writing does for me. Someday, I’d love to take my poetry further, but for now I share it with you.
Every April, I post daily, original poems in celebration of National Poetry Month. So far, I have successfully completed five years of April poetry. I have also completed a year and a half of weekly poems, though that endeavor is on hold for now. This year, in April 2018, will be my sixth time attempting this challenge. Thanks for reading and enjoy,
