Welcome! I'm so glad you've found your way here.

I'm Lisa, a poet who writes little delights full of shadowy fragments & tiny shivers.

For a while now, my energy has been focused on my Patreon: writing & recording a creative project a month, penning some small essays, sharing behind the scenes peeks & hosting co-working sessions. My patrons are currently the only ones who get to see my new work. If you're curious about what I'm writing now, or want to support me as an artist, please join me on Patreon!

Each month I also write a full-moon missive, packed with curiosities, articles I've found intriguing, things to make & do, & little updates. I'd love it if you signed up so we could stay in touch!

I've been offering online "sprints" to my patrons, where we work in silence on our respective projects during a few 20 minute bursts. It helps me focus when I know I've only got a little time to work, plus I've really missed that cafe feeling—the quiet accountability of others working alongside you.
I host them twice a month & everyone gets so much done during each one! I just love them & I really hope you'll join in one day.

I'm also slowly working on filling a little etsy shop with digital planners, which have become a bit of a new infatuation of mine.
