Julia Paul practices law by day and poetry by night. She is a popular featured reader at venues throughout Connecticut and, although her modesty almost prevents her from saying it, she has been referred to as a powerhouse. Her poems have appeared in a variety of journals, among them: RUNES, Connecticut River Review, Broken Bridge Review, Common Ground Review, and Caduceus. Her prize winning work appears in anthologies, including the award winning anthology, Lavandaria: An Anthology of Women, Wash and Word and has been selected to be performed by the East Haddam Stage Company.
She is active in the poetry community, serving on the boards of the Connecticut Poetry Society and Riverwood Poetry Series, LLC, the latter of which sponsors readings and an annual five day poetry festival at venues throughout central Connecticut.
Julia is an attorney in a private practice in Manchester with an emphasis on elder law, mother to three sons and juggles, literally and figuratively. Her youngest son thinks it’s important to say that she wrestles alligators every morning but she does not see the relevance of mentioning that.
