Rose M. Smith
Rose M. Smith is a familiar voice in Columbus poetry. Her snapshots of the human condition have appeared or are upcoming in Minola Review, The Pedestal Magazine, Third Wednesday, Snapdragon, The Examined Life, Pluck! The Journal of Affrilachian Arts & Culture, Mom Egg Review, Naugatuck River Review, Main Street Rag and several other journals and anthologies. She is author of four chapbooks, most recently Holes in My Teeth (Kattywompus Press, 2016), and was co-editor of Cap City Poets: Columbus and Central Ohio’s Best Known, Read, and Requested Poets (Pudding House Publications, 2008). Rose was recipient of a fellowship from the Cave Canem Foundation. She is a senior editor with Pudding Magazine and has served as a contest judge and coach with Ohio’s Poetry Out Loud program (a national competition for high school students) for the past several years. Rose has represented Columbus five times in national poetry slam competitions, is a co-coordinator of The Poetry Forum Columbus, and facilitator of Salon Columbus monthly poetry workshop. She has been called “a shy, quiet atomic bomb”, “a legend in Columbus poetry”, and “‘a giant of a poet’ whose poems have ‘long legs that straddle both the print and performance worlds, enriching the norms of both.’”
On March 10, Rose M. Smith will be performing a set of original poems followed by a short Q&A.
