User profile: Neal M. Warren


About me,I didn't really pursue writing until after I left the military. Until then I had written and destroyed one poem I hadn't thought important. Now I write. I also manage the presentations at Poetry Pure Poetry. (Read On)

It's just starting up, courtesy of Susan and Bud Burwell, owners. We want poets to have a venue and a network to build on. You can be an amateur or professional, but come and share. We'll have 10 minute slots for you to express yourself in poetry, poetic prose and/or creative writing and with a small group; we'll go a second round.

If we have enough regulars, we'll look to a second night and possible book collaboration. So come, enjoy, enrich and drive safely.
