Small Town Kid, UNTIL Magazine

June 10, 2023

Lobbezoo writes a short creative non-fiction piece about growing up as a farm kid in the tiny town of Lynden, Ontario, and going to visit the local Co-op with her father.

Memory was the topic of Issue 5 of UNTIL Magazine, a brilliant online journal created to showcase artists UNTIL the pandemic is over and life returns to a new normal.

"New Friend"

In "Social Distance, Haiku, and You" by Alan Nakagawa

April 23, 2020

How is your experience of social distancing going? Imagine hearing from 500+ people on their quarantine time -- all in haiku.

October 15, 2015

This blog post was written for a friend's business site while Lobbezoo was creating a life coaching business.


Lobbezoo finds it relevant to her current work as a writer because an artist is a kind of entrepreneur who has a multi-faceted role: doing the work (writing), refining and pitching and sell the work, motivating oneself, staying organized, and so on.
