Joan Zachary: Photographers and writers - perfect together!  

Angel Ackerman, from Parisian Phoenix Publishing, will be presenting with me at the next meeting of the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group.  We'll be talking about how Parisian Phoenix has joined literature and the visual arts (especially photography), and how photography can be the "secret sauce" that will bring excitement to your writing process, from inspiring future works to marketing the finished product. Hope we'll see you there!

Joan Zachary joined GLVWG a year after it was founded.  She began her creative life as a writer, but in recent years, she has found more satisfaction by telling stories visually. Illustrating the written work of others is her current passion, along with photographing farms, cats, and total strangers.

Angel Ackerman, former journalist, founded Parisian Phoenix Publishing in September 2021 to promote unique voices and diverse perspectives. In addition to newspapers, Angel has been published in Ten Word Stories by Dime Show Review, Rum Punch Press, StepAway Magazine, two volumes of The SAGE Encylcopedia, and did book reviews for Hippocampus Magazine and Journal of Global South Studies. She loves to travel, has an academic interest in post-colonial francophone Africa, and writes the Fashion and Fiends horror/chick lit series. Learn more at

Gayle Hendricks is a professor of graphic design with decades of experience in commercial print production. She is the art director at Parisian Phoenix where she puts her obsession with typography and clean design to good use creating books.
