An excerpt from her novel-in-progress All the Water Yet to Come received the 2015 Writers Studio Festival First Place Award for fiction. Featured in The Denver Post (September 2015), and on the cover of The Bloomsbury Review (July 2013), Lambert received the “Wise Woman Fellowship Award” from A Room of Her Own Foundation in 2013. That same year, her popular blog All Things Literary/All Things Natural received the Colorado Authors’ League “Best Blog of the Year Award.”

Lambert’s writing is widely anthologized, appearing in dozens of collections. Her most recent essay, “Mother Tongue,” is featured in the 2016, 100-year National Park anniversary issue of Sojourns: Landscapes for the People. Her short story “The Widow of Loreto” appeared in Huffington Post and her most recent poetry appears in the 2016 Santa Fe Literary Review, and in Open to Interpretation, Love + Lust, Summer 2014.

A writing coach and leader of creative adventures for 19 years, often working with organizations such as True Nature Journeys, the Grand Canyon Field Institute, and the Aspen Writers’ Foundation, Page’s “River Writing Journeys for Women” were hailed by Oprah's O magazine in 2006 as “One of six great all-girl getaways of the year.” She’ll be co-leading the 9th annual “Literature & Landscape of the Horse Retreat” in June, 2016, the 19th annual “River Writing Journey for Women” in August, 2016, and the 4th “Peru: Weaving Words & Women Retreat” in October, 2016.
