Welcome

Hello!

Welcome, and thanks for visiting my website.
    I’m happy to report that a new book about land and language is taking shape.  I love the process and will do my best to report as chapters appear. My most recent chapters are about brooms and pipes and buckets (and words and me and you).

poemcrazy: freeing your life with words Meanwhile, poemcrazy: freeing your life with words (in a 23rd printing!) has a life of its own and continues to bring surprise and delight into my world. It may well have brought you here today!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 




Foolsgold: Making Something from Nothing (and freeing your creative process) Foolsgold: Making Something from Nothing and Freeing Your Creative Process seems to help people loosen up and encourage their hidden artist to come out to play.

   

 



  

  




Bathing with Ants Bathing with ants (my small chapbook of poems) has invited a trail of Argentinian ants into my house.  Be careful what you name your books!  Luckily these ants don’t bite and for now my kitchen is immaculate.

 


   

 


 

 

If possible, support a local bookstore and order books there. You might suggest they order several copies! Or if you want to order online, check out Lyon Books or Barnes and Noble online.
   
For more information on each of my three books, click on the book links.

New workshops are being scheduled in northern California this winter and spring. Check the calendar for times and places.

I’d love to visit your town, local library, living room (or kitchen!) for a workshop from two hours to two days.  Contact me for creative play/writing evening, day or weekend retreats.  Have pens (plus fool’s tools) will travel!   My rates are reasonable (and flexible.)  I love to work with all ages and levels.
 
Comments on workshops include:

Exhilarating, playful and profound.  Opens a tremendous creative frontier for people. --Kathlyn Hendricks, author of Conscious Loving and The Conscious Heart.

  I didn’t want to say goodbye to that day. --William, SED 5th grader, Chico.

Susan doesn’t teach poetry so much as unlock it.  Her teaching itself is poetry.  –Amy Tullius, Poetry and the Piano Workshop

I appreciate your comments and notes.  Contact me any time at suegwool@gmail.com

news & info


I've been doing a series of workshops in rural libraries sponsored by Poets and Writers Organization and the Center for the Book out of UCLA. Look and
see if any of the workshops are near you. They're about two hours each, free and we have a great time. You may discover a part of you that's long been in hiding.

Let me know if you'd like to have me come to your area to do a workshop. My fees are reasonable. If you can gather a group, I'll bring my word tickets and appear at your door. Contact suegwool@gmail.com
