Just a few so far, but I'll collect more in my usual haphazard manner.
Things you really ought to read

Says Steven: "My writing comes from places I don't like to look
at anymore. But the more I ignore them, the more they insist
on being heard. There is no choice in the subject matter for my
muse." Steven writes poems, too--poems not at all like the ones
you're used to. Better.
Peggy's short stories have appeared in a number of print and online
literary magazines. You can read some of her essays and award-winning
stories here. Now, she says, she's "venturing into the longer works
territory while remaining wary of the 'n' word."
Paul just wanted me to mention that he'd published some stories--he forgot
to add that those stories are unforgettable. The ones on this site appeared
first in such print publications as The Crescent Review, Sou'wester, The
South Dakota Review, The
Chicago Reader, Sideshow, and several others.
Gary lives and writes in Missouri. He prefers the creative nonfiction essay
and admits to incorporating some of the techniques of that genre while

wife in the Dominican Republic. Her husband loved the place, but
Barb? Well . . . .

you'll buy the book.
Captain Diane Diekman's story. A female pioneer, she struggled and
