As a poet, Leigh has been widely published, and has worked on the staff of numerous literary magazines, such as Poems That Thump in the Dark, Second Glance Magazine, and Medicinal Purposes Literary Review, Asbestos Arts Journal, and Impact and et cetera (the official and unofficial anthologies printed by her and fellow students when she attended Fairleigh Dickinsin University.)  Ms. Harrison is the author of three poetry collections: "Tour de Farce" (New Spirit Press: Kew Gardens, NY, 1996) a chapbook of humor and parody, "Our Harps Upon the Willows" (Cross-Cultural Literary Editions: Merrick, NY, 1999) a collection of poems about spiritual faith and doubt, and "Finding Sermons in Stones," (WordCrew.org: New York, 2011) a collection of poems about nature and the four seasons.

Leigh's book reviews and essays have appeared in numerous magazines including American Book Review, Medicinal Purposes Literary Review, First Literary Review - East, On The Bus, and Home Planet News (online).  She is the creator of two new poetic forms: the Harrisonian sonnet, and the Pentina, a variation on the sestina, and her other publication credits appear below.  There is an article on Wikipedia about the Pentina, and the Pentina is also included in "The Book of Forms / A Handbook of Poetics Including Odd and Invented Forms" (published 2012), by Lewis Turco.  She has guest-hosted the cable TV show, Poet To Poet (with Robert Dunn), which appeared for years on cable TV in NYC and other cable affiliates across America.
