Hi, I'm Annie, poet as well as a writer, performer, and entrepreneur. I'm so glad you came by my page. You've found a place for poetry and inspiration!

You can find a quote from my poetry in the Backstory, and if you like it, there are more poems at my website, anniefinch.com, where you can also buy signed copies of my books. I always love to hear from readers, so please drop a comment here, on my blog, or on my facebook page!

My poems are magical spells that use rhythm to change the reader--and so, to change reality. Whether I am writing a curse or an amulet, a poem about love, ideas, or the sacred beauty of nature, it is the rhythm that brings my words into your body and soul. Thanks for taking the journey with me!

Oh, you may also want to know about my new project, The American Witch Community & Marketplace. It's a retail site for wonderful witchy women, selling everything from chocolates to goddesses, with a spiritual and poetic twist. I also write regularly on spirituality and poetry for The Huffington Post.

FOR POETS: The power of rhythmic language is my passion. I have written many books on meter and form for poets, and to address the interest so many poets have in honing their metrical skills, I am starting an online community and school focused on poetic rhythm that will be up and running soon: Poetcraft Circles.com.

You can sign up for info and updates on all my poetry, writing, and other projects at anniefinch.com--and also sign up to receive a free inspirational weekly spell in your mailbox.

I hope we'll stay in touch! Enjoy!

love,
Annie
