About Lisa Kamolnick

Lisa Kamolnick was born into military life, which provided her a nomadic childhood accompanied by the roar and soar of fighter jets. As an adult, she planted herself in northwest Florida’s sugar-white beach sands, within range of fighter jets and fished-upon jetties leading to the Gulf of Mexico.

During an inland detour among lakes and live oaks, she earned a B.A. in English from University of Florida. Lisa’s subsequent career path offered diverse roles, among them technical editing, business writing, business management, strategic planning, public relations, and marketing and corporate communications. She also worked as a vocalist and musician.

In 2007, Lisa shook the sand off her feet and traced an ancestral trail to northeast Tennessee highlands, where she now pursues creative interests. A poet, writer and photographer, Lisa’s work explores human nature, the human condition, the natural world, and what lies between and beyond. 

Her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in HeartWood Literary Magazine (Heartwood Poetry Prize semi-finalist); Women Speak, Vol. 7Black Moon Magazine; Mildred Haun Review; Maya’s Micros; Tennessee Voices; and others. Her photography has appeared or is forthcoming in Wild Roof Journal and other venues. Some of her work may be purchased on Fine Art America.

She currently serves as Vice President of Communications for Poetry Society of Tennessee-Northeast and is also a member of Lost State Writers Guild, the Appalachian Authors Guild and the American Society for Composers and Artists (ASCAP). 

When not writing, Lisa enjoys cooking (and eating), spending time in nature, visiting with family, and finding inventive ways to procrastinate.
