Kat Pobjoy writes lavishly, walks quickly, reads avidly, cooks enthusiastically, sings rarely, smiles widely and laughs loudly and often.

Katie Sehl, humbly playing with a poem pattern laid out by Kenneth Goldsmith in "Wish Me Well and I’ll Love You Still: The Dog Ears of Erica Baum." In his article that follows the poem, which sits “fixed” upon the page, Goldsmith explains that “There’s no correct way to read the text.” This notion is one of the principles The Writings on the Fridge is built upon. I’ve played with a few of the ways to read Goldsmith’s text and hopefully created a few more. I graciously thank him for inspiring me and encourage you to check out his website and his work.

Katie Sehl is a student, writer, singer, songwriter, dancer, photographer, lover, fighter. One day she decided to make fridge magnets. One word led to another, then one picture led to another, which led to the writings on her fridge. With many thanks to L. Cohen for inspiration.
