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.

 

Pen Pal Campaign

I am creating a Pen Pal Campaign. Contact me here or email kymalien@hotmail.com, kimmalinowski1221@gmail.com, if you are interested in a handwritten note.

These mailings may spill some tea or have information about new books that I or a friend has published. You DO NOT have to write back--but I'd love you to!!!

 

This project is in effort to combat the loneliness of the age and bring us closer together. I don't want an email newsletter. I need personal contact. --Kim

Why?

I wrote my grandmother's cards--holiday, birthday, etc. The year she went into the nursing home, I gave cards and candy canes to every person in her senior living building (75?). I felt that I was too late to help her get friends BUT many, many, in the building sent her cards back that year. She smiled "I don't know this person"--but even though she never went back--she knew that person after that card. I forgot that lesson until her birthday this year.

 

I realized what I had been lacking these last several years. CARDS!

I would love to send you cards! I hope it gives a needed boost that someone cares.

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

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?

My work has been appearing in a lot of places. It's fun to GOOGLE Kim Malinowski poet and see what pops up! Hopefully, it's all good! ; )

A few negative reviews pop up. Not everyone understands me. I'm told that I shine too brightly. Maybe. My intensity can incinerate! But I send that energy wil love.
