Michael Schein: Michael Schein is the author of two historical novels, one nonfiction history, and a logorrhea of poems. His latest is John Surratt: The Lincoln Assassin Who Got Away (2015). His novels are Bones Beneath Our Feet (2011), a historical novel of Puget Sound, and Just Deceits (2008), a historical courtroom mystery. Michael teaches poetry and fiction at Port Townsend Writers Conference, Write on the Sound, in libraries, and elsewhere. He is founder and director of LiTFUSE Poets’ Workshop. His poetry is supported by a grant from King County 4Culture. It has been nominated for the Pushcart thrice, and stuck to refrigerators by magnets. Michael and his wife Carol live in the Snoqualmie Valley between Duvall and Carnation. http://www.wryink.com/

Keith Moul: Has published his poems for over 45 years, often in little magazines’ and literary journals. In 1974 he received a PhD from the University of South Carolina, working with James Dickey as chair of his dissertation committee. He also studied Anglo-Saxon poetry in the original language during his doctoral work at the University of Iowa, subsequently publishing many alliterative accentual poems in translation. He often reads a brief section of Anglo-Saxon text so his audience can hear its music. He is also a photographer and began publishing his photos in magazines in 2010. In recent years Keith has had several books published or accepted: The Grammar of Mind by Blue & Yellow Dog Press (compilation of 260 epigrams about the mind); Beautiful Agitation by Red Ochre Press (winner of its 2011 chapbook contest); and Reconsidered Light by Broken Publications.

He appears in print and online in Rattle, Rattapallax, The Sow’s Ear Review, Voices in Wartime, PoetsWest, The Pedestal Magazine and four anthologies with poets Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Rita Dove, Sam Hamill, Marilyn Chin and The Dalai Lama. His poems are available on CD and heard on radio shows from PoetsWest here in Washington. In 2006, Evolving Editions Press New York included him in their series, “Illuminations” on Interfaith Understanding. His newest book, Of One and Many Worlds from Poetic Matrix Press came out in 2006. He toured The U.S. in 2003 to promote his second book, Jazz Cocktails & Soapbox Songs and is also author of The Fires of Spring, a collection of Buddhist poems written in South Korea.
