Author's Bio

Paula J. Lambert is a literary and visual artist from Columbus, Ohio. The focus of her work in her two most recent collections has been the anatomy of birds: by digging deep into their bones, beaks, and feathers, she has found her way to issues both deeply personal and broadly political. Author of A Lesson in Possibilities (2019), The Ecstasy of Wanting (2018/19), The Sudden Seduction of Gravity (2012), and The Guilt That Gathers (2009), she has been recipient of an Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowship and two Greater Columbus Arts Council AITC Resource Grants. She has twice been a fellow of the Virginia Center for Creative Arts. Lambert owns Full/Crescent Press, a small publisher of poetry books and broadsides, through which she has founded and supported numerous public readings and festivals that support the intersection of poetry and science.
