Each month I post an update called Rewrites on what I'm up to and content I would like to share with you. Most of the links on this post are informational, but a few are affiliate links to help maintain this website.
This is the inaugural post of Rewrites. Each month I will share my recent publications, what I am reading, and other content related to writing.

"Hope" is the thing with feathers
by Emily Dickinson
"Hope" is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -
And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -
I've heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.
Make a list of all the things you are passionate about. Your passion will come through in your words.
Quote From a Writer:
"Instructions for living a life:
Tell about it." - Mary Oliver
I'm Kerry (She/Her/Hers) and I am a licensed therapist, group facilitator, poet, writer, & speaker. This is a place to acknowledge and validate our suffering and trauma, while also learning how to turn toward aliveness and spaciousness.
