Poetic Obituaries: "Fionna was always a writer and she wrote

constantly--poetry, essays, unpublished novels," [Barbara] Baer said, adding that [Fionna] Perkins loved doing readings of her work and often inspired others with her charisma and passion.

"She declaimed things," Baer said. "She brought people to her feet when she read. It was in the troubadour style."

Baer said Fionna's work was published in such collections as The Haight Ashbury Literary Anthology and The Mendocino Anthology of Women Poets. She was a great supporter of homegrown talent, hosting countless poetry readings and literary workshops.
