I want to be a published poet. I live in the San Francisco Bay area and attend college in Boston, Massachusetts, where I study English and Nursing. I have been published in Stylus, a literary publication at my school.

I'd be delighted if you took some time to read my work. I welcome criticism and thoughts, I find it to be very helpful and necessary to my growth as a young poet.

Thank you.

Also, I have a blog at http: //theblindassassin723.blogspot.com/. I post art and poems by published folk that inspire me to write.
