McDole
“Inspiring the world one poem at a time.”

Maureen McDole was born in St. Petersburg, FL in 1974. She is a direct descendant of carnies, carpenters and fishermen. This do-it-yourself ethos in her DNA infuses every area of her life. As far back as she can remember she loved to write. Her first book of poems, “Exploring My Options,” came out in 2006. This was the first title from Summerfolk Press, which she founded with Gabriel Garling.

In December 2008, Maureen graduated from USF-St. Petersburg with a BA in English Literature. Her second poetry book, “Longing for the Deep End,” was released in December 2011. Maureen is currently working on her third collection of poems.

In 2013 Maureen graduated from the National Speakers Association’s Speakers Academy. She has been leading workshops and speaking about creativity for over 15 years. Also in 2013 Maureen co-founded the local literary arts organization, Keep St. Pete Lit, because she believes wholeheartedly in the power of literature to change the world.
