   Hello, there!

I'm Robert L. Penick, and I welcome you to my website.  I have some pieces of my writing here, both poetry and prose, and a fraction of my bibliography which has spanned twenty-five years of publishing, hundreds of journal publications and a few short books.  I'd also like to provide links to some friends of mine and their creative endeavors.  Last, under the "Love for Sale" tab, I'll tell you about a couple of books of mine (one a poetry collection, the other a novel) that need good homes.  I hope you enjoy your visit.  I can be reached at rlpenick (at) bellsouth (dot) net.
