Rebecca Lard (1772-1855) was the first poet in Indiana. In her day, Lard was well known for submitting to publications. A copy of her little volume of verse (there are only five numbered pages) is preserved in the collection of the Historical & Philosophical Society of Ohio, Cincinnati, and an undated clipping from an early issue of the Cincinnati Gazette pasted on the inner wrapper states that it is the work of Mrs. Lard, “a lady of Indiana.” Also authored The Banks of the Ohio which was published in 1823.
To submit by mail see the "Rules" page.
