I promised grandpa I'd dedicate my first book to him a long time ago. A blog was probably beyond his imagination but I dedicate Illuminous Flux to my grandfather, Richard Lane.

 

 

Nora Snyder writes for her website, Illuminous Flux.

Read and hear an interview with her on WRFI Community Radio.

Her work springs from questioning and elevating the human experience through small moments. Nora is committed to writing from a place of truth, teasing out ideas in novel ways. Her work reflects honest talk about real topics, grounded in daily life and reflection.

Her essays concerning feminism and motherhood were published in the 2015 Penned Parenthood Literary Magazine and her work concerning neurodiversity and autism were displayed at the 2015 Ithaca Festival’s Social Justice Tent . She has also been published by the 2017 States Of Mind Literary journal and participated in the 2018 Still I Rise gallery show at Tompkins County Public Library with pieces about mental health and feminine identity.

She has facilitated the writer support group, Writer’s Block Party, from 2014 until the present both online and gatherings in real life. She also hosts a monthly Open Mic Sharing & Listening Space event for word artists at Sacred Root Kava Bar and leads story hours for children at several local libraries.

Nora has participated in the World Goddess Day celebration from 2016 until the present by organizing a community wide “Cliterally the Best Pleasure Hunt Ever” with accompanying power point presentation and free 3D printed clitorises for all participants.

Nora also served as contributor and co-editor for NY Votes For Women: A Suffrage Centennial Anthology in 2017.

Nora lives in Ithaca, NY with her husband and children. Visit www.illuminousflux.com to see more of her work.

Below are some kind testimonials offered by my readers:

“Mary Cassatt’s portraits depict moments of tenderness between mother and child, establishing an importance to a relationship previously relegated to fringe obscurity. Jackie “Moms” Mabley’s stand-up comedy routines tackled issues of racism head-on, obliterating ignorance with sass and humor. Dorothea Lange’s photographs ignited apathy into action by visually capturing the intense struggle of children and families during the Great Depression. These women made their mark by doing something true to themselves that was new in the world, embodying Georgia O’Keeffe’s line, “I have things in my head that are not like what anyone has taught me.” So it is with Nora Snyder’s Illuminous Flux. Whether in spoken conversation or online, Snyder speaks from a place of truth and authenticity, teasing out ideas and concepts for your consideration that you’ve likely never entertained before. Her commitment to honest talk about real topics grounded in daily life invites thoughtful reflection. One minute, you’re stunned, mulling over a profound parenting question she wrote or admiring Salvati’s gorgeous elephant sketch, and the next minute, you’re cackling with laughter about her self checkout experience, all with a feeling that you’re in it together, and that you want more of it, whatever “it” is. Nora Snyder and her husband live in the Finger Lakes region of New York State with their four children, a pond, some cherry trees, and a menagerie of pets. ” Erica C.S.

“Nora has a way of looking at you that is exactly a gentle tug. You can not be gazed upon by that woman and not offer something up in return. She teases out your specialness whether you want her to or not. I had no idea how important her friendship would become during my third pregnancy and through the first year of my son’s life. Her welcoming, coaxing way was precisely what I needed. And she’s still at it! With Illuminous Flux, Nora will continue to pull our stories out of us and we’ll all be the better for it” -Michele O.
“Nora is incandescent.  Radiating warmth and compassion. Igniting passion and curiosity in those around her. Illuminating the joy, beauty, and sheer hilarity of the world.  Fearlessly (or fearfully) casting her light upon her own darkness. Questioning, observing and elevating the human experience through small moments. A harbinger of personal epiphanies. She is connection, gently bringing people to the things/words/people they need in that moment. Like luminous ether made flesh. “- Laura S.

“Kindness: you are kind of awesome, kind of funny, kind of silly,

Intensity : you are intense of feeling, intensely supportive, intensely generous, intensely loyal and loving

Connectivity: you connect right to people, you connect thoughts together in ways only you can, you connect to your own emotions deeply” -Grady K.
