Notebookwriter with Mike Marcellino

Kelsey Waldon, Barlow, KY

an emerging 22-year-old singer songwriter known as "Anchor in the Valley."

Her debut CD, recorded in Nashville, is receiving rave reviews -

"Waldon’s delicate voice mixes well with the old time instrumentalization. This is not quite the Delta, and not fully the Low Plains, the music skirts all around the south while remaining fresh at each turn."
-DayBowBow-Dallas, TX

"Crystal, clear voice and unique country sound"
-Jack Montgomery - Java City - Western Kentucky University

"something as intensely artistic and moving as this record demands the attention of the world. Miss Waldon is a gifted lyricist with a voice not heard since the famed Bristol TN sessions of old."
-Andrew Sovine (Kink Ador, Electric Guitar)

Barlow is located at the very Western tip of Kentucky and is very close to both the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. Waldon has been writing songs and playing guitar since she was 13. Anchor in the Valley's first album (out now) was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Phil Harris at Battle Ridge Studios in Nashville, TN and features 10 original songs written by Waldon herself. There is nothing that makes her more happy than writing a good tune.

Elizabeth Brown, Chicago

a writer, professor of writing, and musician who is the Founder and Director of both the Chicago Writers' Workshop and the soon-to-launch Los Angeles Writers' Workshop, both of which bring writing classes, workshops, and mentoring programs to adults throughout Chicago, Los Angeles, and the world. The CWW and LAWW workshops also include special programs that mentor underprivileged teens and adults in creative writing, screenwriting, and filmmaking studies.

Annie Finch, Portland, Maine

author or editor of fifteen books of poetry, translation, and criticism, including the trilogy of poetry collections Eve (1997), Calendars (2003), and Spells, and the long poems The Encyclopedia of Scotland (2002) and Among the Goddesses: An Epic Libretto in Seven Dreams (2009). Calendars was shortlisted for the Foreword Poetry Book of the Year Award, and Eve reissued in the Carnegie Mellon Classic Contemporaries series in 2010. Other honors include the 2009 Robert Fitzgerald Award and fellowships from the Black Earth Institute and the Wesleyan Writers Conference.

Finch's music, art, and theater collaborations include the opera Marina (American Opera Projects, 2003). Her work has been translated into numerous languages, and she has performed her poetry across the U.S. and Europe. Her books about poetry include A Formal Feeling Comes (2003), The Ghost of Meter (1994), An Exaltation of Forms (2003), The Body of Poetry (2004), and A Poet's Ear (2010). Finch holds degrees from Yale University, The University of Houston, and Stanford University. She currently lives in Maine where she directs Stonecoast, the low-residency MFA program at the University of Southern Maine.

Rebecca Cantrell, Hawaii

A few years ago Rebecca Cantrell quit her job, sold her house, and moved to Hawaii to write a novel because, at seven, she decided that she would be a writer. Now she writes the Hannah Vogel mystery series set in Berlin in the 1930s, including “A Trace of Smoke and the forthcoming “A Night of Long Knives.” “A Trace of Smoke” was considered by major cable networks as a television series.

A faded pink triangle pasted on the wall of Dachau Concentration Camp and time in Berlin, Germany in the 1980s inspired “A Trace of Smoke.” Fluent in German, she received her high school diploma from the John F. Kennedy Schule in Berlin and studied at the Freie Universität in Berlin and the Georg August Universität in Göttingen before graduating from Carnegie Mellon University.

When she visited Berlin in the summer of 2006, she was astounded to discover that many locations in her novel have been rebuilt and reopened in the last few years, including the gay bar El Dorado and the Mosse House publishing house.
