Poets

Jilly Kidd, AKA Adele Ward, has been organising writing events on SL for 8 years and runs the Written Word group, which has more than 1,200 members and events most days of the week. She does the same things on SL that she does in London, where she’s a poet, novelist, journalist, publisher and writing event organiser.

Grail Arnica (Sangreal Arnica) has been a poet, a sailor, a bureaucrat, a lava-walker and a spy…and for most of these, she is still. Her love of meter, traditional and experimental form and intricate interior rhyme are only exceeded by her desire to tell stories, or failing that, live them. She never met a metaphor she couldn’t take in a fight, and her poetry sometimes glows purple. All in all, she would rather be on top of the ground than under it.

Morgue McMillan is German and joined SecondLife in February 2007. Her poetry is written in English and often deals with social, political or humanitarian issues and has been published in SLiterary Magazine, Reveal Magazine, AnonLiterary, Vitruvius Magazine and Blue Angel Landing as well as in the Blotter Magazine, Eternal Haunted Summer and Acumen Poetry Journal.

Serene Bechir has been reading poetry across SL since June 2007 and is best known for her improv poetry. She says of herself, “I am only a mirror, the poetry is in each of you.” In addition to reading at various open mic events and at the cold read event Sound of Poems she is frequently involved in charity and activist events as well as being a long standing support staff member of the SL music scene, Serene finds poetic expression not only in the words she speaks but in the things she does.

Leslye Writer. Wanderer between Europe and USA Leslye is a permanent resident of Second Life for almost eight years already. Leslye has read at Second Life poetry venues for much of that time but did take a year to get up enough nerve to do it. The poetry community of Second Life is really an extension of real life and a comfortable always-there poetry world to enjoy. Through her reading and writing of poetry Leslye is a consistent presence in the writing community of Second Life.

Arlene Radasky, AKA Imarad Breen, has been on Second Life since August, 2008. She has read her published novel, The Fox ,here and is now hosting an open mic on Wednesdays on Cookie Island. She recorded her novel, and held workshops here in Second Life for anyone interested in learning how to record their work and where to get heard. She has also been a leader of workshops during Nanowrimo on Milkwood. She has one poem published, ‘Forever’.

Keykey Underwood, AKA Patricia Averbach, is a novelist and poet whose debut novel Painting Bridges was published by Bottom Dog Press in 2013. In the same year, she won the Lumen/Camden Poetry Competition and her prize was publication by Ward Wood Publishing of her chapbook Missing Persons. She has published an article about the Jewish community in Second Life and has been a regular at SL poetry and fiction events for 7 years.

Julie Juliesse. Humble writer, court jester, patron of the arts, Julie enjoys sharing her own work as well as living vicariously through that of her favorite writers.  Serious as she is, she does not expect to be taken seriously.

While loving to cheer for people, they are also a very tight group that are passionate about everything they do, whether partying with one another, cheering at a pep rally or just hanging out. They love one another, they stand up for each other and they don’t let anyone or anything break them apart. The Sugar Bears are the definition of sisterhood! That closeness makes them one of the most dynamic cheerleading squads around. If you want a smile on your lips, just watch their hips!
