     Sheppard Kominars, who has lived in San Francisco for the past twenty-five years, has been writing poetry since he attended Kenyon College, more than 60 years ago. He has taught poetry writing, along with literature and drama, since his first appointment at Washington College, in Chestertown, Maryland, in 1956. He has also written 5 novels, half a dozen plays, and has developed an important book on journal writing called, “Write for Life: Healing Body, and Spirit Through Journal Writing,” published by the Cleveland Clinic Press, and then Kaplan Publications in 2010.  The book is available electronically as well.  Poetry writing has been a vital source of expression for him through the years, through good times and bad, and he has recently discovered the very active poetry world of San Francisco.  He was a featured poet at Sacred Grounds where he debuted in September in front of a packed audience for the first time.   He has been coming to the W R I T E  O N ! workshop since August and says he looks forward to it each week as an excellent place to explore themes and ideas and encourage his own and others talent.  It is a Win-Win Workshop!
