Cheryl Hicks is a writer and artist living and working in East Texas. Hicks is currently working on a series which combines her love of words and art. It is titled “I Just Don’t Read Like I Used To,” and is created by cutting books into strips of text and collaging them to create an image. Her self portrait is an example of this technique. It was created from a book about lucid dreaming.

Sarah Hartman’s poetry is her odyssey and the backbone of everything she does. Her poetry is a documentary of her journey through life. Sometimes she uses it to travel back in time. Other times she tries to imagine becoming someone else or someone greater than herself. Her poetry is her lifeblood: When the ink runs dry she begins to decompose. She has been writing poetry for 20 years and will continue to write.
