On the Desk

A Little About Me

Who I Am

I like glamorous words, glitzy emotions, and I have always been a lover of words. I believe that poetry is the answer to most any problem and that poetry will become even more vital in the future. It gives us hope, courage, and peace. In our ever changing world, poetry will evolve, transform, and hopefully, we will transform with it.

On the Desk

Author/poet/dreamer...brilliance is in the eye of the beholder. Mountains become sand...sand builds to become mountains.

What’s New With Kim Malinowski

I want to interact with the writing community. Taste brilliance, dapple in dactyls, come what may.

I am facilitating "Hybrid Shorts" a FREE class at the Quince Orchard Library.

We are having a terrific time! I want to thank all participants and librarian Eve who facilitated the workshop. Please message if you are interested!

About the Author

I blend modern tales with folktales and fairytales. Modern issues are no match to a fairy godmother. My work reflects war, myth, death, and other combinations. Lately, I've been focused on what "Home" means. Where do I belong?
