Sue Weems is a writer, teacher, and traveller with an advanced degree in (mostly fictional) revenge. When she’s not rationalizing her love for parentheses (and dramatic asides), she follows a sailor around the globe with their four children, two dogs, and an impossibly tall stack of books to read. 

She’s a regular contributor at The Write Practice.

Would love to hear from you!


  1. Hi Sue,
    Thought I’d drop by your site and say hello. You nailed in your take in “Why poetry?” I believe more and more, reading poetry (and also the writing of it) teaches readers and writers alike, critical thinking, being concise, and teaches discipline and word economics.
    Reading your short story ‘Seventeen’ was indeed refreshing.
    And, participating in this writing competition made me realize the importance of dropping by ‘The Write Practice” on a more consistent basis.
    Are you at sea as we speak? (That must be an extraordinary feat.) Or are you following “the sailor” on land?
    Nice meeting you!
