Karen Typing Color110 copy.jpg

My name is Karen Lewis and I started reading and scribbling at age 5. My first poem was a haiku about a horse. I lead workshops with California Poets in the Schools, the Arts Council of Mendocino County, and in community settings. After detours through UCLA and Mount Holyoke College, I earned my BA in Urban Studies from Stanford, and an MFA from Antioch – Los Angeles. One of my favorite places to be is lost a labyrinth of library stacks, searching for one call sign but finding another book (or two, or ten). Another passion is travel. Wordjourneys unites these pursuits. Imagination often moves beyond maps, and I hope Wordjourneys will inspire your own adventures.
