Welcome to Collective Self

I’m Lori Kane, poet and author. Our new book, Year 1 Poet, will be available the first week of December! Yay! It’s an illustrated story book/poetry book/tips for emerging artists book. Recommended for people becoming artists, people remembering or suspecting that they’re artists after a long time away from that part of themselves, and for people who love poetry that exposes the heart gently, accompanied by occasional cursing, much like me. Illustrated by three remarkably talented, funny, and kind friends.
