Ruth Ann Meyers Kulp has been a professional singer, a voice teacher, and music therapist for several decades. Her writing journey officially began with Laurelville Poetry Workshops, continued with Franklin and Marshall College and Millersville University classes, and Catskill and West Chester Poetry Workshops. At Eastern Mennonite University, a B.A. in Music also led to a course in Ornithology and a love of birds. Graduate studies in Voice Pedagogy and Performance at Westminster Choir College helped to fine tune her voice and ears to the musicality of words. She has participated in the Seventh Sister Spoken Word performances and poetry readings at various venues, including the Lancaster Literary Guild. Her poems have appeared in Cicada, Ekphrasis, Quiet Diamonds, The Other Side, and other publications. Ruth Ann is also an artist and lives in Lancaster, PA with her husband and her cat Puccini.
