Iris is a gifted writer, teller of tales, and teacher. Her passion is helping people, including herself, heal. One of the ways she does this is by leading expressive writing groups. Iris offers these in a variety of settings ranging from the county jail, to a residential treatment program, to the Lawrence (KS) Public Library., to her dining room! She is a nationally certified journaling and poetry therapist through the International Federation of Biblio-Poetry Therapy. Iris is grateful to serve as a professor for online courses through Washburn University & elsewhere. She lives and gardens just a block from the banks of the Kaw River. Oh, and she has some poems published here and there. Her newest book, Write To The Source ~ A Journaling Guide For Recovery is available at Raven Book Store in Lawrence, KS. She can be reached at IrisGarden9@gmail.com and soon at her author’s page on Facebook.
