Sponsored by Workhorse, Lexington Poetry Month is an easy to use
platform for poets to publish and share their work in an attractive
way. The community is supportive and diverse, commenting and
encouraging one another throughout June. Money we raise goes
to maintaining the cost of the website and publishing the yearly
anthology. Our goals are to provide every poet (~150) a copy of
the anthology, lower printing costs, and expand opportunities
offered during Lexington Poetry Month, such as featured readings
and poetry workshops.
Lori Taylor writes everything from notes to poetry to NaNo WriMo novels to family history for sheer pleasure. She suppressed the urge to write until her mid to late thirties. She enjoys reading, puzzling, and being creative for fun and for problem solving. Her favorite genre is Historical Fiction. Lori celebrates her Appalachian heritage in writing and table conversations with coffee. She wears many hats and feels all the feels all the time. She lives in Georgetown, Kentucky with her husband, Mark, their three daughters, 2 Shelties, and a black torby cat named Kitty (who demands a seat at the table on top of Lori’s desk invited or not.) Lastly, Lori encourages anyone who has something on their mind and heart to write it down. If you don’t feel like it, do it anyway (just like she tells her daughters when it’s time to do the dishes!)
Reason for signing up:
LexPoMo invites participants and readers alike to celebrate life through verse no matter what level of expertise, and I love that about this community.
