Welcome to the stanza, a little room for poetry and the writing life.
For general information, bio, publications, events, etc., please visit my author website: www.mollyspencer.com.
As for the name, the stanza: In literature a stanza is a series of lines that comprise one unit of a poem. I like to think of each stanza as a kind of poem in and of itself. The word stanza comes from the Italian for “room” (hence the subtitle), which was derived from the Latin stantia, meaning ‘to stay.’ So, a stanza is a little room to step into, to look around in, to stay for a moment before moving on to the next place. I hope you will do just that: come by and visit, see what’s here, join the conversation if you’re so inclined, and take what you like for the next little room of your day, week, life, journey.
Thanks for reading,
