Meet the Poet
Michele Riedel started jotting down her thoughts when she was 11 years old and continued writing in journals and experimenting with poetry when she was older. She often took “vacations” from writing and then would find herself drawn back to it. In joining the River City Poetry and James River Writers groups in Richmond, Virginia, she found the support and motivation to start writing poetry again. She states that she is always looking for the best words to describe the “largeness of life.” She was a spotlight poet on Tina Glasneck’s "Celebrate with a Book" online series, and she enjoys writing in her poetry blog, WordPalettes, to which she invites your visit. VerseWrights is Michele's first publishing experience. Read.
