Rooted in Poetry began as a collaborative project between myself and local news site, The Bloom, to promote and publish original poetry within our rural communities of Lake County.
This collaboration offers a platform writers to introduce themselves to the community through their writing. Writers of all backgrounds are welcome regardless of your experience or style. Writers outside of Lake County are also welcome to submit! We support established and emerging writers and look forward to reading a wide range of work and perspectives.
In 2020, in partnership with KPFZ 88.1FM, I created the Rooted in Poetry radio which airs every 3 months on the first Saturday of each month. This show is for Lake County poets to showcase their original work on air. Specials guests are invited as well to read and discuss their work. In 2021, Rooted in Poetry expanded into a podcast with The Bloom.
