Susan Noyes Anderson Poems, My Website

Welcome to my blog about LDS poetry. I am both a writer and an appreciater of poems inspired by a personal belief in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I am creating this arena to share my thoughts with you about my own work and the work of others.

Since 2008, I have kept a poetry website, Susan Noyes Anderson Poems, with over 300 poems on various topics, including LDS ones. The site serves my purposes well as (1) a place to store my poems (better than a desk drawer!) and (2) a resource for people seeking poems on specific topics for non-commercial use. It has been well-received, and I continue to contribute new material on a regular basis.

Having said that, Susan Noyes Anderson Poems is not the right venue for the kind of discussion I hope to create here. Its express purpose has been to display my poems on the page simply, without the distraction of comments or explanation, so I find myself wanting to expound on them sometimes with no place to do it. I also want to share and discuss poems by other LDS poets that cannot be included on my poetry website, which is reserved for original poems I have written.

If you are a reader, writer, or lover of LDS poetry, I hope you will enjoy visiting here with me. And I hope you will take the time to join the discussion by commenting freely. I will also consider submissions from other poets who would like to share their work on this blog. Contact information can be found in my profile.

Thanks, and I hope to see a lot of you!
