Ruth Nott is 80+, a native Floridian, born in the Orlando area, who has found poetry to be a valued part of her life. Her poetry reflects her faith and values and a deep love for God and family.
In addition to her poetry, Ruth keeps busy in retirement with her friends at the Ocala Christian Church, is a member of the Freedom Poetry Group of Ocala, Florida and still makes the occasional quilt or other sewing project. Ruth also assists her handicapped daughter and son-in-law and enjoys the company of all three dogs in the household...Sasha, Artie and Princess...as well as her cat Smokey.
Her work has been published in various anthologies of the International Library of Poetry, small press magazines, Poetry Canada magazine, The Quilter magazine, The Joy of Living Poetry Collection by Hazel Street Publications, Sea Oats Review a magazine by the Panama City Writer’s Assoc., Mahogany and Molasses, Verse-atility (chapbook of the Chiefland Poetry Group), Anthology Twenty-Four, Twenty-Five and Twenty-Six of the Florida State Poets Assoc., Inc., Of Poets and Poetry (newsletter of the Florida State Poets Assoc., Inc.), The Easterner (a publication of State Farm Insurance Company), Family Matters (an anthology by Ruth’s family), various other newsletters, and several poetry websites, blogs, and groups.
