Here are two lovely blurbs for my upcoming poetry collection, entitled The Meeting Place, due out May 2018, from Salmon Poetry of Ireland. It's starting to become real… In Dede Cummings' The Meeting Place, we find a writer at the height of her powers, reaching back to the past to find not only herself, but also to... Continue Reading →
My first poetry collection out April 11, 2017! “In To Look Out From, Dede Cummings takes good advantage of the imaginative fluidity that poetry offers. Even her poems of memory and family are driven by curiosity and enlivened by quick maneuvers and spritely turns. And she is careful never to leave the reader behind.” —... Continue Reading →
What an amazing first trip to Cuba! I'm co-leading trips occasionally and helping to find clients for my friend, Tim Weed.

My beekeeping book is coming out in February! I am really excited about this because not only did I learn a lot about bees, I also found that I am passionate about the little critters and want to set up a hive, maybe come springtime. Here is a bit about my book The Good Living... Continue Reading →
Pretty happy to have a poem published today! I've been working on this for twenty years, off and on. I dedicate it to my dear friend, Annie Philbrick, whose generosity and spirit (not to mention my first host to the San Juan islands!) has been so dear to me. And also a big shoutout to...

I am representing Vermont author, Tim Weed, for his publicity book launch campaign for his stunning debut novel, a YA historical fiction which is set on the island of Nantucket. Tim will be appearing at the Nantucket Book Festival on Saturday June 21st, where he will be under the authors’ tent signing books most of the day. Here is a first review of his book:
“Will Poole’s Island is more than a coming of age story . . . the reader is left with a longing to find that place, that moment when everything is right and the everything is possible. It is a longing we all search for spiritually, geographically, and emotionally. This book proves that oppression, obstacles, fate, and the world we live in should not stop us from seeking that place. If we can’t find it right now, walk in the shoes of Will Poole and rediscover that lost island in your life. It will inspire you.”

In mid-2012 Julia Ferrari became the sole proprietor of the Golgonooza Letter Foundry and Press after 30 years of partnership with her husband, Daniel Carr. The premature death of Carr two years ago deprived Julia of both her life partner and her business partner, a double loss from which she is now beginning to emerge with renewed purpose. It has not been easy but she is determined to continue the press, or some incarnation of it, on her own.
Julia is not alone in her situation, in fact she is…

Waiting for Marcel Proust….so, this list is fun and creatively done. That’s my post for the month….now, back to reading all 50!
Let’s face it: I’m a bookworm. Some people might think that spending hours mulling over an old paperback edition of a Russian novel will help you with nothing. But there are many reasons why you should stop everything you’re doing right now and head to that odd-smelling used bookstore around the bend. Us bookworms know more than you think.
