Welcome to my Poet Lady Chat Room. I would like to invite you to click on the chat box and type in a question, a suggestion, submit a poem, in other words – “chat with me.” I may, if you submit a poem, decide to feature it in my Poem of the Week section or, we may simply exchange ideas and suggestions about your poem.

This is a place to “talk” poetry with someone who has loved it all her life. I have a true passion for the possibilities of poetry and would love to hear your thoughts and/or read your poem. I will be happy to offer my reaction to your work and, based on over 40 years of teaching poetry, organizing, and conducting poetry workshops, working as a book review editor for an international poetry magazine, authoring five books of poetry and two textbooks on teaching poetry, send along my thoughts on ways to make your poem stronger and more impactful.

If you’re on my site, you have a connection to poetry. Feel free to connect with me – right here -right now, by typing your message into the “chat box” and clicking send. I’m waiting…


Your friend in poetry, Susan

#Rhyme is fine – just not all the time!

Wander, wander, in search of truth

Coming closer to the sea,

While waves that slip and sweep away

Clears my memories, mindless moves,

Drawing together from shore to shore

Calming all along, I'm here to stay!

Very nice.  I will feature your edited poem in a future poetladykatz Instagram post.  I'm impressed with how you reconsidered your poem and brought your thoughts and your message together in a lovey, lyrical way.   - Susan
