I write poems in Russian. Please excuse my attempts (though rare and sporadic) to engage rhymed English.
Between 1980 and 1991, attended so called literary societies (small studios led by professional poets) in Volgograd. Had publications in local newspapers. Represented in a collective book of poets in 1991. Since 2010 actively self-publish poems in the Web. Some poems got published in edited literary Web publications.
Influences include: Pushkin and others.
