Barry Marks is a poet and attorney in Alabama. His book of poetry, Possible Crocodiles (Brick Road Poetry Press), won the Alabama State Poetry Society’s 2010 Book of the Year. This has not allowed, however, for early retirement.
Brad Rose is the only person in the United States who has not earned an MFA. He received a BA, however, in English Literature, during the Paleo-

A resident of Georgia, Jane Blanchard has recent work in The Healing Muse, The Rotary Dial, and The Seventh Quarry. She is widely expected to run for Vice President in 2016 on a "Americans Should Read More Poetry" platform.
Not that Jane isn't fully qualified to be President. We are sure she is. But, it's a humor thing. "President" isn't funny. "Vice President" often is. Sort of like 9 is funnier than 8. And Joe Biden is funnier than Dick Cheney. In fact, there are several fast-spreading viral diseases that are funnier than Dick Cheney.

Jen has had poems rejected by us because they were submitted in Sanskrit.
