One of our many shared ‘moments’ at TEDxColumbus, Rose will delight us with her provocative poetry and engaging delivery.
Rose M. Smith is a familiar voice in Central Ohio poetry. Her snapshots of the human condition have appeared in Main Street Rag, The Iconoclast, Pedestal Magazine, Pavement Saw, Pudding Magazine, Concrete Wolf, and other journals, as well as several anthologies. Rose is an Associate Editor at Pudding House Publications, author of Shooting the Strays (Pavement Saw Press, 2003) and A Woman You Know (Pudding House Publications, 2005), co-editor of Cap City Poets: Columbus and Central Ohio’s Best Known, Read, and Requested Poets (Pudding House Publications, 2008), and is a 2010 inductee into Pudding House’s Poets Greatest Hits collection. 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.’”
