VoicesNet Hall of Fame

We occasionally choose writers and contributors who have volunteered their vast talents and enthusiasm generously to VoicesNet.

We once called them Poets in Residence. To commemorate hope for the future, we are renaming this designation as the "VoicesNet Hall of Fame"

Longer Hall of Fame Profiles will be created over the next quarter for all inductees.

Folks, these can be looked at as corrections because these two ladies should have been on this board a long time ago. Bless their hearts.

Nishu Mathur has been a longtime terrific writer and contributor at VoicesNet and has been a behind the scenes and on the scenes inspiration for many of us. We love her greatly and hope she is here for a long time.

Marcia Schechinger also gives us all immense inspiration by her constant giving to others around here and including her family at home. We also love her greatly and want to tell her how much we appreciate her efforts.

These two ladies must have read tens of thousands of poems by now quite frankly. Can you even believe that?
