Like always, all are welcome. Please come and introduce yourself, and listen, and meet poets from not-here, and talk, and listen some more. We are pleased to have you. 

Adrian Kien grew up in Elko, NV and Missoula, MT. He received his MFA at Boise State University. He is the author of the forthcoming, The Caress is a Letter of Instruction (Slope Editions).

When not teaching or writing, he enjoys exploring the Idaho backcountry looking for deer and cow bones for his wife to paint.

Kyle Crawford is but a fisherman from the Great Fucking Plains.
(or, if you’d prefer a clearer bio from a previous reading: Kyle Crawford was born and raised in a small town in rural Nebraska. He attended college in Lincoln, Nebraska at the University of Nebraska. While Kyle didn’t grow up in Lincoln, he certainly grew up there. A founder of SP CE, a writing studio in Lincoln, Kyle headed west to create poems within the confines of the open spaces of his childhood in a completely new context–Boise, Idaho.)

Daphne Stanford has lived in Carpinteria, Portland, Iowa City, Riggins, Boise, and Eugene. She currently reads poetry over the airwaves, Sundays, on KRBX 89.9 FM, Caldwell/Boise. Her poems can be found atThe Monarch Review, Lingerpost, and Caesura (forthcoming). She holds a BA in English from Reed College and an MFA from the University of Oregon.

Megan Williams writes, farms, and waits tables in Boise, Idaho, where she curates GHOSTS & PROJECTORS. a poetry reading series. Her poetry has recently been a bridesmaid for the “Discovery”/ Boston Review prize and the Center for Book Arts chapbook contest, has actually appeared in journals such as Tin House, PANK, and Vinyl Poetry, among others.

Romcom is Cole Browning of Prescription Pills and Wampire.
