Essays and Other Writing

Writing in its many forms has always been an interest. During my years in education, for example, I co-authored a Senior English writing text book, The Writer Within: Dialogue and Discovery (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1989) with educator Trina Wood, and my work appeared from time to time in education related publications.

In recent years, in addition to poetry, a number of my reflective essays incorporating both poetry and prose have appeared in various books/anthologies. This section includes a selection of excerpts from some of those essays. The excerpts can be accessed below by clicking on the titles.

The Excerpts:

"Where Surf Meets Shore: Reflections from the Edge"

"Points of Articulation: A Letting Go and a Reaching Towards, A Poet’s Journey"
