PA Live! Blog of the Week: The Forwardian Arts Society

NEPA Blogs will be presenting a "Blog of the Week" on WBRE's PA Live! every Tuesday. PA Live! airs weekday afternoons on WBRE from 4:00 to 5:00.

Our PA Live! Blog of the Week this week is Paul Smeltz's The Forwardian Arts Society (http://forwardianartssociety.blogspot.com/).

On the outskirts of Northeastern Pennsylvania, bordering New York and the Lehigh Valley, is the arts mecca of Stroudsburg. You can't throw a rock in Stroudsburg without hitting an artist or musician, though such behavior is frowned upon. Since June 2006 Paul Smeltz has taken it upon himself to report on the artistic goings-on in and around Stroudsburg. With words and pictures, Paul tirelessly posts about arts news and events in the Stroudsburg area on his blog, The Forwardian Arts Society.

Northeastern Pennsylvania is seen by some as a thing of the past, a place where things used to happen, good only for nostalgia and dreams of better days. But there is so much in Northeastern Pennsylvania that is vibrant and dynamic. The biggest problem is that people simply don't know about it! Blogs like The Forwardian Arts Society keep us aware that this area is full of good and exciting things, just waiting for us to notice them!
