Mardi Knudson has been writing poetry for 38 years. Each of her sons has a binder with an annual birthday poem in it! She has always enjoyed playing with words. As a retired educator she felt privileged to mentor young poets. She continues that passion at YAYA (Young Author/Young Artist conference) each May. She is a member of the Grand View Poets and loves sharing poems with the group.
