Marsha Olitsky is a poet living in Philadelphia. Bourgeon is delighted and honored to provide a home for her first publication. She writes:

Growing up with dyslexia writing and reading was always a struggle for me. I remember as a little girl crying in the kitchen to the point I was gasping for air. Reading was like torture. I avoided writing like the plague. As I grew I gravitated more and more to writing as an outlet of expression. I never let misspelled words or horrible punctuation stop me from accomplishing my goals. After some encouragement I have chosen to submit some brief writing. I am praying for the opportunity to prove to myself and others the only limits we have are the ones we imply on ourselves.
