CrystieCookie999: Live in Utah. Finished education/English teaching courses online in 2018 but had to stop short on the student teaching part due to mother's health. Love poetry. Also write melodramas/comedies/mysteries once in a while. Have six very funny parakeets. Current goal is to write some western oriented things and finish Christian quiet book number 2 in spite of sore shoulder.

CrystieCookie999: The annual convention of the National Federation of State Poetry Societies wrapped up here in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I came away with three honorable mentions but no cash awards. But it was great to meet poets from around the country and see people I knew from Utah!
