Mimi Maduro cherishes words, metaphor, language, poetry. How words are placed alongside each other to create meaning, how poems can transfix and transform human beings—this is what calls her to pen and paper, and to the 29th Street Writers. She writes about observed moments—who and what touches her deeply yearning to discover what is beneath the surface. She continues to write as a path to inner knowing and beauty. She is currently compiling a manuscript of her poems written over the past twenty five years.
