Poetry with Lynda Ladret

Apr 9 2019, 10:29 pm in , ,

In keeping with the National Poetry Month theme I invited Author and Poet Lynda Ladret to the blog. I met Lynda in a small writing group and asked her to tell us about her writing  and share her poetry with us. 

Rita: Lynda, why do you write?

Lynda: I write to please myself. For my own entertainment and amusement A lot of the stories I write are creative non-fiction, about my past experiences.  On the other hand, my poetry just seems to write itself.  I like writing stories for the opportunity to explore emotion, to try to define meanings.  It’s therapeutic at times.  Writing is the scariest, most exhilarating thing I’ve ever done.  I love it!

Rita: How long have you been writing?

Lynda: Three years.

Rita: Have you shared your work before?

Lynda: I started posting poems and short-stories on facebook, where quite a few friends and acquaintances made positive comments, and encouraged me to keep writing. 

Rita: Oooo. I love short stories. We’ll have to talk about that another time.   

Rita: Have you taken any writing craft classes?

Lynda: Yes. I enrolled in a poetry class in 2017 and have never looked back.

Here are Lynda’s poems. Joy and Regret. 

 


 

 

Wow!  Thank you for sharing your poems with us. With a few words you manage to tell us a story filled with deep emotion. Well done.  

Leave a comment and let Lynda know your enjoyed her poems.
