Lisa Tulfer is a freelance writer and blogger. She specialises in non-fiction articles – place writing and history are recurring themes – and also writes reviews and occasional poetry. Her work has been published in The Pilgrim, The Cardiff Review, the Earth Pathways Diary and the Redemptorist Press, and she has guest blogged for Green Ink Poetry and Liza Achilles. She is currently working on her first non-fiction book.
Lisa’s interests include photography (especially mono), textile art (weaving), linocut printmaking, the Three Hares and Green Man motifs, maps, the ruins of medieval monasteries, and the history of how people lived and the houses they lived in. She likes to cook, eat, listen to the radio, knit, and read (mostly non-fiction, Golden Age crime fiction, and literary magazines).
I have long thought that the two forms of writing I engage in – creative nonfiction and poetry – are two sides of the same coin. Like poetry, the nonfiction I write is about noticing things differently. Poetry is about precisely that – a good poem leaves the reader thinking “wow, I never looked at it like that before” and can weave magic around the most familiar and mundane subject. Creative nonfiction, I would suggest, has a similar role – to explore the homely as well as the exotic, looking with fresh eyes and an unexpected perspective, touching and listening and smelling and tasting, and telling the stories of people, places and objects with new voices.
