Biography of Marra Makinen

I'm originally from North Carolina, however, I currently live in Scotland and, appropriately, have a flat on a cobblestone road within walking distance of a castle. I have been writing poetry since I was 17, oftentimes utilizing it as a method of healthy expression during periods of transition. Although I have been writing poetry for five years, I am not well rehearsed on its fundamentals and the intricacies of this art form. I have previously used poetry solely as an outlet for expression, but am now looking to grow my knowledge on the basics (like how to use sounds, rhymes, and meter), the different styles of poetry, and how to write a good poem.
