Meet the Poet
Diana Matisz is a late-blooming writer and photographer. She was born and raised along the Allegheny River near Pittsburgh, PA. And although she lived away from this environment for many years, the river and its quiet shores have become a constant source of inspiration for both her poetry and her photography. Diana has published one book of poetry, two photography books and is currently in the editing stages of a collaborative book with a colleague in Portugal. During this last summer, three of her photographs were selected for display at the Carnegie Museum of Art. She tweets @Diana605 and has a presence Facebook. Her main poetry site is Diana's Words. At her photography page, Life Through Blue Eyes, Diana has found the means to combine her love of short form poetry with her photography, as well as her joy in collaborating with other writers. "It's an incredible experience when I collaborate on one of my photographs with a group of poets. The range of perspectives is fascinating and beautiful and it makes me view my own art in ways I would never have expected." Read.
