Vera Petra and Clarisa Dear who are co hosts of The Petraology 233 Show airing Wednesdays beginning at 6pm on The Pocono Internet Broadcasting Company (PIBCO) in Stroudsburg, PA interviewed Paul Adam Smeltz (yeah that’s me) and Debbie Burke of Pocono Jazz and Poetry (PJP) on Wednesday May 5th in regards to their upcoming Literary and Arts Magazine titled, “Forwardian.” Although much of the conversation centered around the magazine, good portions of it included PJP, The Forwardian Arts Society, plans for our combined upcoming ArtSmash of the Poconos taking place in Blakeslee in July, and the meaningful experiences the arts can have for so many lives. It was a fun experience as it was wonderful to have the opportunity to share what we do and are planning to do with the public through the media. You’ll find more photographs in The Forwardian Arts Society 2010 Gallery at www.myspace.com/forwardian_arts.
