Author's Bio

Dr. Guiseppe Getto is a Zen Buddhist, a poet, and an Associate Professor of Technical Communication at Mercer University. His first chapbook is Familiar History with Finishing Line Press. His individual poems can be found in journals such as Sugarhouse Review, Reed, Eclectica, Pif Magazine, The 2River View, Redactions, The Santa Clara Review, After Happy Hour, The Adirondack Review, and Harpur Palate, among others. Though poetry is definitely an avocation for him at this point, he has been writing poetry most of his life. Like many writers, he uses art to process a difficult upbringing. He was born and raised in rural Nevada, a landscape littered with nuclear fallout from above ground atomic testing, violent cowboys, and dysfunctional family systems, including his own. This landscape is largely the palette he continues to use in most of his work even though he has lived outside of it for many years now. Visit Guiseppe online at:
