POETRY ~ BY GAIL LIVESAY
I write poetry, essays, plays, fiction and nonfiction. I am currently revising my autobiography which explores the impact of growing up with bipolar disorder, which had not been diagnosed and/or recognized.
I attend weekly classes led by Pulitzer Prize nominated poet Sidney Saylor Farr and am a participant in The Kentucky Women's Playwright Seminar led by Trish Ayers.
My poetry has been published in "Poetry As A Prayer," "Appalachian Women Speak," "Appalachian Women's Journal," "Appalachian Connection," "The Seeker," and several will be read by the New Mummers Group production in NYC and in Berea, Kentucky. I have had several informative letters to the editor published in The Berea Citizen, Richmond Register, Mount Vernon Signal and The Lexington Herald.
I live in Berea with my husband Wayne. We have been blessed with two children, Lisa and Michael and two granddaughters, Marina and Hannah. I feel that although God has allowed me to have bipolar disorder, he has blessed me with the gift of writing.
