My dear friends and community,
This morning I am very sad to have to tell you that our dear friend and contributor weedlewom has left this life last week following a sudden illness and hospital stay.
Part of me didn’t want to believe it, I think, so I am a few days late with this news.
I was very lucky to know Susan in my own community here in North Carolina, as last August I’d joined her writers’ critique group that met once a month. I will tell you that she was as gentle and magical a soul as you find her voice to be in her poetry.
I didn’t know her nearly well enough, but I hold each memory dear. Rest in deepest peace, poet.
You can read the poems she shared with us here.
And take good care of each other out there, please.
