Featured Poets

Louise Robertson lives in central Ohio with her two freakishly charming children. Widely published in small press journals, Robertson graduated from Oberlin College and earned an MFA from George Mason University. A winner of the Mary Roberts Rinehart award for a poetry manuscript, she has won the Columbus Arts Festival poetry competition twice and performs in poetry slams locally and regionally. She has been instrumental in bringing national poetry events to central Ohio for several years.

Paula J. Lambert was born and raised in small-town New England, worked through her life as a sign painter, ice cream maker, carnie, obit writer, tutor and English professor.  She has now settled quite happily in the Midwest with her “geeky” partner, William Michael Perkins.  Trying out life as a full time writer, she seeks representation for her completed memoir, Fruit of My Wound and is working on a full-length collection of poems entitled The Sudden Seduction of Gravity. Lambert has been teaching at the college level for 18 years, including fiction, poetry and performance poetry classes. 
Featured Musician
Sarah Goslee Reed lives in rural Mount Vernon, Ohio with her husband and numerous pets.  Her recent CD, “It’s About Time” is a tribute to her dad, George Goslee, former principal bassoonist with the Cleveland Orchestra.  For many years Sarah has been involved with Camp Nuhop, a camp for children with learning disabilities and behavioral disorders. Sarah still plays classical music in her local symphony orchestra, and has been known to put her education to use by being a microbiologist. She loves nature and animals and surrounds herself with both.
