Les the Mess

Bio for 2023

Leslie is an artist who writes instead of fights: poems, songs, a folk opera and morning pages (sometimes in the afternoon). Creative writing and music make her happy on a daily basis. She's a retired accountant who leads Free Writing Practice at the Carnegie Center, plays with Old Time Jammers at the Rockhouse Brewery and figure draws and paints at UK SAVS.
