In addition to writing poetry, Berry also provides free reviews for her fellow poets in hopes that modern poetry can be shared with a wider audience.
After having once been forced by circumstance to ignore poetry, Berry has since dedicated her life to it. She has fallen madly, deeply in love with this craft.
What inspires you to write?
My inspiration comes from so much. From the natural world to rugby, there's no shortage of amazing things to write poems about.
Tell us about your writing process.
I take pen to paper first. I go over and over, reading the poems out loud and scribbling in words that fit the piece better until I am happy with it.
Who are your favorite authors?
Betsey Cullen, W. R. Rodriquez, and Cokie Roberts to name a few. Cullen's Our Place in Line is a fantastic chapbook!
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I am incredibly happy to have joined the co-op Indies United Published House, a collective of indie authors. The opportunities when you self-publish are endless.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Oh, who knows. Self-publishing is hard but I could see more collective like Indies United taking off.
What genres do you write?
What formats are your books in?
