Sponsored by Workhorse, Lexington Poetry Month is an easy to use
platform for poets to publish and share their work in an attractive
way. The community is supportive and diverse, commenting and
encouraging one another throughout June. Money we raise goes
to maintaining the cost of the website and publishing the yearly
anthology. Our goals are to provide every poet (~150) a copy of
the anthology, lower printing costs, and expand opportunities
offered during Lexington Poetry Month, such as featured readings
and poetry workshops.
Debra wrote what she referred to as "other writing" for years, before finally admitting it actually is poetry. She writes from personal experiences and her emotions. Debra is a 2020 Poetry Gauntlet participant and enjoys the challenge of reading at an occasional open mic night. Debra's paying gig is working at a local non-profit where she assists youth and families.
Reason for signing up:
I am a Poetry Gauntlet participant and heard about the #lexpomo opportunity. I decided being a part would help me meet my writing goal, plus provide for a challenging experience. And...maybe meet some new people. Basically I think it will help me grow as a writer so why not?
