East Fork:

A Journal of the Arts​​

Noah Bruce

Hi, my name is Noah Bruce and I am from Bethel. I've written a lot of poems, but this is the first one I've ever submitted anywhere. It's called "I'm Not Him" and its about an old breakup.

Tim Combes

I am an English Major at UC Clermont and plan to either transfer away or transition to main campus next fall to pursue creative writing. I am currently a Staff Writer for The Lantern at UC Clermont and an English/Writing tutor in the Learning Center. I am also Young Life leader at West Clermont High School. I hope to pursue writing in some form as a vocation, preferably writing fiction, poetry, comedy, journalism, or all of the above.

Next semester, I will be in the Pre-Pharmacy program. I am the middle child of seven children. Two boys and five girls (including myself).

Gabriella Sizemore

I'm an English major who has plans to become a writer of some sort. I will be starting my sophomore year in the spring of 2018 because I started a semester late. I would like, as we all would, to make an impact on the world somehow.

Melissa Uhran

​I am currently enrolled in two associates programs one of them being Marketing and the other one being Business Management. From then I will be continuing on to get my Bachelors in Technical Applied Studies at UC East. I enjoy the art behind marketing but wish that there was a way to get rid of the imagery of body standards in the media for both men and women. I believe that younger generations are being forced to inhale these standards and therefore lose their childhood and innocence. This is the message I try to portray in my drawing and poem from a girl's perspective.​

Jasmine Warner

​I'm currently an English Literature major at Clermont, but I have a deep rooted passion for photography. This is my first time submitting my images to a literary journal.  I hope they make you smile!

Guy Zimmerman

​​I have been taking courses and helping out in the fine art and geology areas for the past four years. I've been a serious photographer since the mid 1960's; my digital art is created from original photographs taken at local and national parks around the country. My interest in rocks has lead me to become a gem faceter and cabber for the past forty years. Before retiring, my career was working on jet engine components as a Senior Data Systems Specialist at General Electric.
