Zita Maria Evensen

... physicist, psychologist, and poet.

Earned my college degree at seventeen. I earned two academic degrees after that.

During my junior year in college I meandered to Africa, the Mediterranean, Europe, Asia and the United States for a year. My favorite part of this big blue marble are the countries around the ring of fire.

I travel when I can afford it, paint water colours, weave rya tapestries ( won some awards), garden rather fiercely, teach the Internet to newusers, and dance Spanish fandangos, Texas two-steps, and Hawaiian hulas.

My poetry often faces the sunshine.

Bill Griffiths

Bill Griffiths was born in London in 1948. He was featured by the late Eric Mottram in Poetry Review in his early twenties. From this early period dates the sequence of Cycles, that many still think his most important achievment. He had a long standing involvement with Koncret Canticle, one of the best sound poetry groups, but equally he is a fine scholar, especially in Anglo Saxon. He has published numerous translations, notably perhaps of the Anglo Saxon "Guthlac B", but rannging by Old Welsh through to Sumerian. He spent much of the late eighties and early nineties in the North East of England, which coloured his large oeuvre of that time considerably. He was a distinguished secretary of the Association of Little Presses,and has recently organised the Eric Mottram Archive, at Kings College, London. His huge output is scattered over innumerable pamphlets. However, `A Tract Against The Giants' (The Coach House Press, 1984), one third of the large (but rapidly pulped) Paladin `Future Exiles' (1992), and a large selection in the recent large anthology published by Kings College of British Modernist poetry, provide a very reasonable introduction. The most interesting outsider of his generation. Nicholas Johnson has written an essay on him available here.

Roy Herman

1953: Born Roy Herman in Brooklyn, New York

1971-1984: Spends many happy, idle years collecting all sorts of useless liberal arts degrees. Supports himself mooching off parents, mooching off fellowship programs, and occasionally finding menial but honorable odd jobs. 1985: Draws up literary favorites list, that in typical fashion, he refuses to alter as the universe and he continue to age. The list begins G.M. Hopkins, Dylan Thomas, J. D. Salinger, Herman Melville, John Keats, William Blake, Wilfred Owen and descends from there.

1986-1990: Spends some less happy years writing dissertations and novels with endless middles and no conclusions. Begins to question wisdom of this struggling student/author racket.

1990-present: Discovers computers, real life; acquires wife and daughter; gets a clue and gets a real job with an actual salary and benefits. Happily sells out artistic pretensions and becomes settled suburban middle-aged man. Also discovers Internet literary subculture. Plays out his delusions of talent there.

Ward Kelley

Fairly new to publishing my efforts -- this most challenging of all endeavors -- I have still been fortunate to enjoy some initial successes, and have published 436 pieces since late '96. Please see the attached list of credits. Current successes are: being nominated for the 1999 Pushcart; completing an interview with Israeli poet Elisha Porat (1996 winner of the Prime Minister Prize for Literature); being accepted by Rattle for the second time; Sunstone, Porcupine Literary Magazine; the Ezines Pif, 2River View, Oblique and Offcourse; and by print magazines Potpourri and Skylark -- each for the third time. Lastly, I was selected as the Featured Poet by the ezine Seeker, England's Poetry Life & Times ezine, and the Canadian ezine, Pyrowords.

Formerly I managed distribution centers in Pennsylvania, Ohio, California, Arizona and Illinois. My wife and I now live outside of Indianapolis and are currently toiling with much determination on our second crop of children, having adopted four wonderful girls and fostered several others.
