I'm Carrie Voigt Schonhoff, an author and poet from Wisconsin. With my two adult children, Sydney and Austin, and two Italian greyhound dogs, I have set out to illuminate the world with my poetry. I was widowed in 2012 and that life challenge has taught me many things, some of which I write about.


I have self-published two books of poems titled, 'The Liminal Space' and 'The End of the Beginning.'  This work will resonate deeply with readers from the Midwest and pull at the heartstrings of those that continue to face challenges but never stop dreaming. My books address the importance of healing, moving on, and being ready to face a new beginning. It is a continuation of beliefs that we can heal by connecting and understanding one another on a deeper level through poetry. 

My work has been featured in Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets' 2024 Calendar and triannual publication Bramble, The Solitary Plover, and Spirit Lake Review.

Here you'll find my upcoming events, purchase my books and read my blog to stay up-to-date on what's happening. I hope to see you soon.
