Welcome to

THE MORNING POET

THE POETRY OF CHRISTIA MADACSI HOFFMAN

POETRY

Inspired by a friend’s daily photography series, Christia Madacsi Hoffman set an intention to write a minimum of two lines of verse per day for 365 days. Four years and thousands of lines later, the result is her debut collection of poetry, Intent. Throughout, Hoffman reveals an accessible and insightful poetic voice as she explores the universal themes of place, beauty, youth, and family. Her moving reflections remind us there is depth in our everyday experiences and significance in our intentions.
