ARTIST OF THE MONTH: LITERARY – JILL LANGE
Jill comes to poetry from a varied background in art, English and environmental education; interior design; technical writing and editing; and poverty law specializing in immigration. These influences including a life-long connection with nature and ongoing sense of social justice can be seen peppering her work. For a number of years she served on the editorial committee for “Tributaries, a journal of nature writing” published by the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Currently, she is focusing on short poems, primarily haiku, senryu and tanka. Her work has been published widely in the US and internationally both online and in print.
