Tell us a little about yourself.
Word Fountain is a literary magazine founded by some creative minds at the Osterhout Free Library in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. We strive to bring attention to creative voices of all types and ages. Occasionally, we feature a special themed issue, such as our Flood Issue to help recovering flood victims.
Who or what are your influences?
Obviously, the library and literature of all kinds. Music and Shakespeare are two main passions of the editors of this magazine.
What subjects do you touch upon in your work?
Subject matter varies and can be heavily music-related in some issues. Not surprisingly, a lot of the content is about love and loss.
What is your most recent work?
Our most recent issue is a special flood issue to benefit flood victims in Northeastern, Pennsylvania. The content features themes from Hurricane Agnes and Hurricane Irene.
What are you looking forward to most at the fest?
It is always good to network with other creative minds. There is always a positive vibe at these festivals.
