Tracey Schmidt is a working poet and a photographer. Her first book of poetry, I Have Fallen in Love with the World, (Turtle Dove Publications) was the focus of a recent 6-week, coast to coast poetry/music tour. 

She performed the work of Hafiz, Antonio Machado, Mary Oliver and her own work, all by memory. Her poetry has been published in Field of Dreams Poetry Anthology, Western NC Woman, Mountain Express, Sheville, Sunburst Anthology of Women Writers, SOL Poetry Anthology, and numerous other publications. 

Schmidt’s photographic -based multi-media installation The Awakening of Turtle Island: Portraits of Native Americans won the coveted Regional Designation Award in the Humanities with the Cultural Olympiad during the Olympics in Atlanta, 1996. This museum exhibit about native people has gone on to tour 18 museums in the southeast, and includes a holographic-style video projection of a Cherokee elder.
