From her beginning, Carol R. Sunde loved words and poetry. She delighted in her mother's dramatic renditions of nursery rhymes and poems such as "Up the Airy Mountain." Raised in Forest City, a small Iowa town, Carol attended St. Olaf College. After graduating with a degree in English and Speech Education, she toured the US for over a year with the Bishop's Company, a drama-in-the-church repertoryorganization. After her marriage to a fellow actor ended, Carol found employment as a social worker in Los Angeles, eventually earning a Masters and a Doctorate in Social Work. When she retired from a Grays Harbor College counselor position, she plunged into a lifelonginterest in poetry by completing a Certificate in Poetry from the University of Washington. Her poems have appeared in Third Wednesday, The Comstock Review, Passager, Raven Chronicles, Shark Reef, and elsewhere. One of her poems placed third in the 2023 Lakewold Garden Poetry Contest. Besides poetry, other top joys for Carol include yoga, bird and sky watching, travel, and camping on Mt. Rainier. Carol lives a seven minute walk from the ocean in Westport, Washington. She feels lucky and privileged to be in the Pacific Northwest with its awesome people, forests, mountains, rivers, ocean, plains, volcanos, deserts, and, yes, rain.
