Maureen Seaton (1947-2023)

I just heard the news that Maureen Seaton passed away on August 26th. I’m saddened by the loss but grateful that we will always have her poetry.
A long time ago when I was at a crossroads, Maureen encouraged me to be authentic, to take creative risks, to defy expectations, to be a poet. When I think about the people who have been muses or angels in my life, who have inspired and encouraged me, Maureen is on that list.
A beloved teacher & mentor, talented poet, beautiful soul, she will be missed.
May her words & memory be eternal.
