Read Mariacristina

The first poet featured in our Spotlight Series this year is Christine Swint. After reading her poem, 100 words: not a dream 2 , I was struck by how stunningly bold her work is. With a thoughtful narrative voice, this poet creates poems born of nature and truth and secrets. Read her November 11, 2007 poem titled My Last Confession to see what I mean.

Christine Swint posts her work at Mariacristina and has been featured at Poet a Day Blog.

Thanks, y'all. Susan, I answer to Christina all the time. Until last year, I was a Spanish teacher. My doppleganger haunts Mexico and Spain when I'm here in the damp winter cold of Georgia. :)
