Congrats to these LM Staffers!

Cassie Premo Steele, Columnist: "My poem, "Writing is like this," was nominated for a 2010 Pushcart Prize--my second nomination! The poem comes from my new poetry book, This is how honey runs, which was published by Unbound Content and contains poems written during my Co-Creating work with clients using creative writing as a means of healing, empowering, and finding balance and meaning in one's life."

Nicole Stellon O'Donnell, Columns Editor: "I'm pleased to announce that STEAM LAUNDRY, my collection of poems, will be published in January of 2010 by Boreal Books, an imprint of Red Hen Press. STEAM LAUNDRYis a book-length sequence of persona poems based on the life of Sarah Ellen Gibson, one of the first women to arrive in Fairbanks in the gold rush of 1903. The writing and research were supported by an Individual Artist Award from the Rasmuson Foundation. AND I have poetry forthcoming in the winter solstice issue of Cirque."

C. Delia Mulrooney, Columns Department Editor: "My personal essay,"Evolution," is in the November/December issue of All Things Girl Magazine. It is about women, body image and self-esteem. I wrote it as a series of small vignettes charting the history of my body and how this has evolved over the years.
