Kelly Cass Falzone
Poet, artist, counselor, and educator Kelly Cass Falzone, M.S.Ed., has been a part of the Art & Soul community for 20 years. Writing since age 11, her award-winning poetry appears in journals including Clackamas Literary Review, Cumberland Poetry Review, and FirstClassLit.com. Although she's wielded scissors and glue for longer than she's written poems, it wasn't until she discovered Book Arts that Kelly felt like a practicing visual artist; her work has since been exhibited in group and gallery shows around Nashville. In Summer 2017, she was Writer-in-Residence at the Gell Center of the Finger Lakes, and has three poems forthcoming in Stone Canoe, for which she has been awarded the 2018 Bea Gonzalez Prize for Poetry.
