Coffee Break 012: JoAnna Ver Meer
Episode 012: JoAnna Ver Meer Oh my friends, I am so very excited about today’s Coffee Break episode (a.k.a. Tea Break, just for today). That’s because I’m talking with my good friend & poet JoAnna Ver Meer, and I think that, by the end of this episode, you’ll adore her as much as I do. “I don’t think I would be a happy person if I couldn’t write every day.” Today’s episode is a celebration of JoAnna’s newest book of poetry, Syllables and Other Poems (published under her maiden name of JoAnna Tatman), and a look at how this poet balances her creative writing life with her technical writing life. “There’s so much beauty around us that we miss it.”
JoAnna is a gentle and quiet spirit who has worked to develop a writer’s mindfulness, read widely from the classics, and find confidence amidst her natural shyness.
