Bending Light into Verse v.2 includes 17 carefully chosen writers hailing from all over the United States
and beyond: New York, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Colorado, Oregon, Prague, and England.

Each writer commissioned for the project was given a set of photographs and asked to write works
inspired by what they saw—be it a title, a short story, or a poem. Each of the writers gladly rose to the
opportunity and far exceeded all expectations. Every photograph was returned, each picture telling its
unique story.

Photography by: Jennifer L. Tomaloff
