the soul that lives and breathes the heart"

Described as a "modern formalist" poet by Penn Kemp, London, Ontario Poet Laureate, Ronda has offered her creative insights to the public since 1995. She uses a variety of styles to suit the mood of any topic she is wrestling into shape, and enjoys experimenting in new and more traditional formats equally. Her early poems were published under her married name Eller, with haiku under her haijin "kinshu ori" (which means "little pen") but with more recent recognition of artistry using her Wicks surname, she has used both names together since 2016. 

In addition to writing poetry and editing her own work, Ronda is actively engaged (by contract) as an editor for other poets, as a book cover artist / designer, and a book interior designer. If you need this service please inquire about availability using the contact link at the top of this webpage. Please also include a description of your project.
