 Featuring David Nelson and Nathan Tompkins

David Nelson is a name accurately applied to the person who wrote this. You may or may not know him. To date his poetry has never appeared in any major publication, except the Mormon magazine Sunstone, to which his mother submitted a poem of his without his knowledge in 1998. He enjoys writing and other things. He will be reading from his new chapbook come/down. For more info visit:

Nathan Tompkins was forced upon this unsuspecting world in a small town hospital in North Idaho. There he spent his early years, until they kicked him out for his unruly behavior. So he went on to terrorize the West Coast. In order to keep his mischievous imagination occupied, his mother taught him to read, and gave to him a love of the written word, including poetry. By age nine, she had introduced him to Noyes, Poe, Frost, Coleridge, Dickinson, and many others. In his freshman year of high school, he began writing poetry…from then on he was screwed. Since then, he has gone on to empty venues throughout Oregon and Washington. His writings have been featured in many publications including NonBinary Review, Yellow Chair Review, and Crab Fat Magazine. He is the author of four chapbooks: Junk Mail of the Heart, The Dog Stops Here, A Song of Chaos, and Lullabies to a Whiskey Bottle.
