The Mondo is a form of classical Japanese Collaborative poetry. This guide brings to light the instructions on how to host a Mondo poetry workshop or pair up with friends and family to write them together. Edited by one of the authors of the best-selling “Japanese Poetry Forms, a Poet’s Guide”, this book also contains the results of 40 paired poets who wrote amazing Mondo during a virtual poetry workshop held during the time of social distancing, proving that poetry, even from far apart can bring us closer. From Local Gems Poetry Press.

I’m happy to be a collaborator in this new anthology and grateful for partner-in-poetry, Jennifer Criss, and poet/editor James Paul Wagner for pairing poets, bringing life to poems, and fostering creativity during this period of isolation.

Isolating is certainly easier with music (and coffee). I recorded this song last week. Thanks to Mark Phillips (guitars and slide-mandolin) and to Nancy Romano (co-lyricist).

Stay safe everyone, Mary

With all the tension in today’s world, a little poetry and humor is a welcome remedy.

This past Thursday, poets gathered at the Onyx Theatre in Oakdale, New York for an uplifting evening of poetry and the launch of Rhyme and PUNishment (yes, you read that right), an anthology of comedic verse in which one of my poems appears.

Below are some photos from the event.

Remember…

when the tough realities of the world are heavy,

humor can take away some of that weight.

Wishing you happiness — and lightness — for the holidays, Mary

I’m writing over at The Dark Jane Austen Book Club today about Ann Radcliffe’s UnknownGothic novel, The Mysteries of Udolpho and John Muir’s Wilderness Essays.

The way in which both authors convey their love of nature is nothing short of breathtaking.
