Reason for Signing Up:
I signed up to join a community of artists like myself, all from the place that I consider home. I believe that poets see the world in a way that o one else does, and I think this lens tis especially valuable when I am seeing how other artists see the place that I call home and see how their lives fit in to the various communities that exist here in Central Kentucky.
