Introducing Michelle Pierce Lyles
December 3, 2021
With the release of our fifth issue last month we announced that The Good Life Review is growing and adding three new editors to our existing staff. We could not be more pleased to introduce Michelle Pierce Lyles who is joining us as a poetry editor.
When we first began this endeavor, part of our intent was to create a literary journal that would be edited and operated by fellow graduates and candidates of the University of Nebraska MFA in Writing program. Michelle is no exception to that rule. In addition to holding that degree, she is a non-profit organization board member and teaching facilitator who has conducted creative writing workshops for urban youth and has also led other writing events.
Being partially mute in her early childhood led her to ‘word gathering’, which was partnered with an intense study of written and verbal word expression. She currently resides in eastern Nebraska and credits her husband and daughters for providing unending support on her journey as a writer.
One of the things we ask all of our editors is to provide us with some unique, fun, or quirky detail about them that we can share with our readers. In addition to being a poet, Michelle is an avid knitter and so her tagline on the masthead is: She never met a ball of yarn she didn’t like.
Welcome, Michelle! We are excited to have you on the team and hope that you absolutely love working with us!!
