I am a published poet and returning member to this site. Life got so busy that I withdrew from this platform years ago. I left Ontario to settle in Alberta, and found that the writer in me is starving for creative connections. I joined a writing group at my local library, but as a poet among fiction writers, I felt like an outsider. I have missed the writing challenges and contests here. No other groups, live or online, have been able to challenge me like those here at Writing.com. So I am back.
