Susan Rocco-McKeel, J.D. is one of the authors of Chronicles of Douglas County, Colorado (The History Press). She is a founding member of the Castle Rock Writers nonprofit corporation, serving on its conference planning committee. She develops and conducts workshops on poetry and other writing topics.
Susan started writing poetry around age ten. Although she has published poetry, the inspiration and objective of most of her poetry has been for personal reflection, observation recording, or to explore human experiences, including the commemoration of loved ones’ struggles and triumphs.
Joining the Poetry Society of Colorado marks a new chapter in her poetry where she welcomes the challenge to write around a theme and sharing with other poets.
Susan’s professional writing background includes legal briefs, governmental publications, project/grant proposals and evaluations, charters, organizational training materials and integrated curriculum.
