Welcome to my online home.  Just like my timber frame cabin in the mountains of South Carolina, I hope this space will have a sense of place. I am fun-loving Southern woman who loves the old folk ways, fresh tomatoes from the garden, local history, and the atmospheric southern landscape.

“Kimberly Simms writes with eloquence and empathy about an important part of Southern history too often neglected.” --Ron Rash, Author of Serena

Forthcoming Poems

We are excited to announce that Kimberly Simms has several poems forthcoming in journals and magazines! Simms also received a Pushcart Nomination!

Also expect a full length poetry book from Simms later this year from a traditional press! Lindy Lee: Songs on Mill Hill is the working title for these history based poems, some nostalgic for those tight-knit textile communities, other poems exploring the hardships on families pre-World War II. I would love for you to sign-up for my author e-mail list for notification of the launch party and book! http://eepurl.com/cyZhsv
