Judy Sizemore

As a literary artist, Sizemore has over 300 stories and poems published in magazines and anthologies and one published book of poetry. She develops curriculum integrating language arts across the curriculum for KET/PBSLearningMedia and has published four resource guides for educators on teaching through literature and the arts. She is on the rosters of teaching artists for the Kentucky Arts Council, VSA of Kentucky and Partners for Education/Berea College and has collaborated with teachers to integrate literature, creative writing and the arts through 150+ in-school residencies (varying from one week to nine months). She has coordinated Arts Academies for the Kentucky Department for Education and the Kentucky Center for the Arts and is a consultant for Berea’s Festival of Learnshops. Her greatest pleasure is helping young people to find their own voice, whether they are writing poems or documenting their community traditions.
