    1. Thank you for listening, Bree! ☺️ The multitudinous opportunities technology offers are overlooked in the literary world, and I hope my podcast may change someone’s mind. Electronic poetry is relatively new, and there are myriad ways we can combine words and media to accentuate the beauty of literature. ♥️

  1. You are a natural speaker dear Veronika. I enjoyed your view on writing. I use many resources to expand my writing and with age. We write differently. Hard lessons and good lessons we release to paper with different eyes and mind. Hello from Michigan.

    1. Dear John, thank you so much for your kind comment! I agree, our writing styles are fluid and we should allow the current of words to take us wherever it pleases. 😉

      1. You are right dear Veronica. Poetry, like music. Should steal the reader or listener mind and thoughts. I hope you have some warm days where you are today and hello from Michigan.

  2. I don’t post poetry myself on social media or online, but I love reading other people’s poetry. Usually, it is so short and beautiful, containing a simple truth in poetic language. I love how poetry, like ebooks and audiobooks, is finding a new format to stay relative when so few people truly enjoy poetry anymore.

    1. Thank you for your comment, dear Anne! ☺️

      I am glad that you love reading e-poetry. Literature, like ourselves, has to evolve and adapt to the changing circumstances. Language us universal and can exist in multiple dimensions, including e-books and social media. Still, nothing compares to the thrill of finding a revelation on the page!🌹
