In Memoriam: JS van Buskirk
Even after her diagnosis, Stephanie was active on the poetry scene – including appearances at the Decatur Book Festival and at Java Monkey Speaks. She was the founder and original MC of the variety show INFO DEMO, performed with the Atlanta Poets Group and collaborated with artist Julie Püttgen on the multi-media project, "An Infinite Variety of Similar Things." She was also active on Twitter, using the social media platform to create haiku and short sonnets.
Our sympathies go out to Stephanie's friends and family, in particular her husband, poet Randy Prunty. To read and discover more of Stephanie's work, visit www.jsvanbuskirk.com.
