Florence Armes Hosmer, born in 1880, was a farmer's daughter determined to succeed as an artist. Acclaimed in the early part of the twentieth century, she has fallen almost entirely from view. This is the story of how Miss Hosmer, a feisty New England woman, painted her way through the new century and created well more than five hundred works.
Helen Marie Casey won the fourteenth National Poet Hunt in 2009 and the Barbara Bradley Award of the New England Poetry Club in 2012. Helen has published two poetry chapbooks, Fragrance Upon His Lips, a series of poems about Joan of Arc, and Inconsiderate Madness, a series of poems about Mary Dyer, hanged in 1660, which won the 2005 Black River Chapbook Competition.
