Valeri Beers is from Bangor, Maine. She is inspired to write by listening to music and her need to remember important things. She has been published in a number of online and print publications including Zest literary magazine, Far Away literary magazine, Kumquat Poetry and The Writer’s Drawer For more, check out the links to her poetry at valeribeers.com and on her own poetry site (wordsoftheval2000.wordpress.com (right here!)
One of my favorite poets is Erica Jong, check her out at http://www.ericajong.com. Her poetry is very personal, emotional and detailed. She has influenced my work a lot so if you like my poetry, you’ll probably like hers as well.
I also really like Dorothy Parker. If you like sarcastic and clever prose and poems, I highly recommend reading The Portable Dorothy Parker from Viking, which has her short short stories and poems.
I also have a poetry book for sale, which YOU can buy, by clicking the book cover down below 🙂
