Are you hungry to read and write exquisite, living language? Do cheap clickbait and empty chatter anger you? If so, then you're in good company. I invite you to join me as we explore how to meet God through poetry and prayer.

A little about me: I'm a DC-based published poet, Poetry Editor at Geez Magazine, former pastor, #ChurchToo survivor, amateur forager, and contemplative prayer leader. When I'm not biking on DC greenways, then I'm hopefully in my hammock, savoring a good book under my neighbor's maple tree.

Sign up below for my newsletter that I send out around the 27th of every month, which contains exclusive content: a personal reflection about where I find poetry lately, a “poetry around town” section of broader news and updates, and “why poetry matters?” observations from a kaleidoscope of poets.
After you sign up, you'll receive a confirmation email. If you don't find the confirmation in your inbox, then please check spam and promotions folders. Adding me (Melanie) to your contact list will also help my newsletter land in your inbox going forward.

Thank you, and I look forward to connecting so that we can find our true homes through poetry and prayer!
