Until 2003, David M. Harris had never lived more than fifty miles from New York City. Since then he has married, acquired a daughter and a classic MG, and gotten serious about poetry. All these projects seem to be working out pretty well. His work has appeared in Pirene's Fountain, Gargoyle, The Labletter, The Pedestal, and other places. He is modestly active on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/david.m.harris1. He also has a science fiction series novel (Bill, the Galactic Hero: the Final Incoherent Adventure, written with Harry Harrison) and a collection of essays (Democracy and Other Problems), both out of print. His first collection of poetry, The Review Mirror, was published by Unsolicited Press in 2013. On Sunday mornings, at 11 AM Central time, he talks about poetry on WRFN-LP in Pasquo, TN (www.radiofreenashville.org).
Maggie Hess started out her literary life writing rhymed verse standing up for fat kids on the playground. Maggie was immersed in poetry from a young age by her father Errol Hess who co-founded the Sow's Ear Poetry Review out of her home. In college, Maggie was the proud winner of the Leidig Poetry Prize awarded to her by the former poet laureate of Maryland, Linda Pastan. Maggie self published her first chapbook, "The Cracked Nut" about the struggle of Appalachians to fight Mountaintop Removal and her response as a Quaker. Since then, Maggie has been published in 15 small presses and magazines and self published so many chapbooks she loses count. Currently Maggie is working on her chapbook "11 Year Cycle". She lives with her mother, two dogs, and rambunctious cat in Bristol, TN.
