Christine's full-length book of poems, by Cherry Grove Collections, Hallow, 2020 has arrived!

The Delmarva Review is going to post one of my poems on two sites: www.TalbotSpy.org and www.ChestertownSpy.org, for April poetry month. The heart of Flesh poems should be online by the first week in May.

MAY 21, 2020
Christine will read in the Takoma Park 3rd Thursday Poetry Reading on May 21st at 7:30 p.m. Click here to check out their calendar for this and other events.

JUNE 6, 2020
A Goal Setting Workshop Christine will host a goal setting workshop for writers of every stripe (academic, non-fiction, poetry, fiction). The day will be filled with activity and discussion—not about the craft of writing—but rather the discipline of setting goals and achieving success.
