photo of poet Fran Immerman is a native of Northeast Ohio, now living in Moreland Hills with her husband and three teenage children and two dogs. She began writing poetry several years ago as a way to hold and manage her grief in the wake of the deaths of both her parents, within nine months, both to cancer. Fran writes poetry with an ear toward melody.

photo of poet Terry Provost is a metaphysico-political poet writing from the political perspective of Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn and Arundhati Roy, and the philosophical perspective of Richard Rorty. He was born around the corner from Herman Melville’s home in Troy, New York, and graduated with degrees in physics from St. Bonaventure and medical physics from the University of Colorado. His first book of poems, Compassionate Imperialism (and its links to terrorism), was published in 2004. He currently teaches math at Cuyahoga Community College’s Metropolitan Campus, and lives in Lakewood with his wife, Karen Cook, and their son, Jackson.
