In addition to pursuing a poetry practice, I write and edit for a wide variety of clients as the managing partner of The Wordbench. I have lost count of the number of books I have edited, much less the lessons and other materials. For recommendations, you can find the icon for LinkedIn below and follow that. That site has not been updated in a while. I have done a lot more since that information posted. But there are only so many hours in a day, and self-promotion is not my favorite use of time. Sigh. It just has to be done sometimes.
