Hello and Welcome! My name is Melanie and this is my little corner of the web, a poetic journal of sorts. Currently it is divided into 3 sections. The first is a place for me to share and archive the words I’ve written. The second features mainly videos of various open mic performances so you can hear the words outloud. Lastly is the everything else page which is really just life and nothing more. A place where I can share the various things that interest, inspire and distract me.

For more about me please check the Self-Interview post in the carousel below.

Thank you so much for visiting and taking the time to browse.
