Are you a fan of Poetry of Presence: An Anthology of Mindfulness Poems, which I co-edited? This companion text by poet and teacher Gloria Heffernan will enrich your experience of the popular anthology. Inside you’ll find:

  • a list of engaging reading strategies
  • fifty stimulating writing prompts
  • a twelve-week workshop curriculum

Exploring Poetry of Presence isn’t an instruction manual or a textbook. It’s an able guide through the terrain of mindfulness poems presented in Poetry of Presence. For either individual or group use.

About Me

I began pecking away on an old manual typewriter in childhood and never stopped. I've authored or edited books in multiple genres, seeking to write across what divides us. Originally from Ohio, I now reside with my scientist-husband and two cats in a 130-year-old house in Brookings, South Dakota. Learn more at
