Eleanor Perry-Smith, Author and Poet and Colorado Native has generously donated an autographed copy of her book Revelry & Rhyme to the 2nd Annual Mental Health Art Benefit, hosted by Empowered Partnerships. The event is a fundraiser for Mental Health Colorado, and will be hosted at Regis University on March 11th.
Eleanor has been featured as one of the 100 Colorado Creatives by Westword, and had a powerful performance speaking about her experiences and sharing her poem “Hell or High Water” at the Tedx Mile High.
Eleanor started writing poetry at the age of ten, and graduated from Englewood High School. After receiving her degree from University of Colorado in Boulder in English Creative Writing with an emphasis in poetry, she moved to Colorado and achieved her Masters Degree in Journalism.
Her works inspirational, powerful, moving and come from a special place inside her, that touches her readers in emotional ways.
As Eleanor is quoted…
“I study Ving Tsun Kung Fu. I like cigars and puppies. I’m a wild adult, and I hope I die laughing.”
Eleanor Perry- Smith’s book will be auctioned off with many other items including art, experiences and other items at the 2nd Annual Mental Health Art Benefit.
