Greetings from Kerry. I’m a “thirty-something” (37 actually) self professed recreational, non-professional poet/writer. I’m one of the few or only male in the Writing at the Ledges group. I’m also the true out-of-towner coming all the way from Mason. I have attended the third Saturday gatherings since the inception in 7/05. I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience, friendship and fun. I began writing in early elementary school and mostly focused on short stories of mysteries or science fiction until high school. Since then, it’s been almost exclusively poetry and journal entries. Perhaps like many people with busy lifestyles and a young family I struggle to set aside time and make writing a priority. I have resolved to do more and I believe I am moving in the right/write direction.
