Bill Pyles grew up on the farm in Michigan. He started writing verse before he was ten. Love overpowered him in his early school “daze.” He has a BA and two MAs. He has taught school for 30 years. He’s been on the poetry circuit since “way back when” and has published his poems “here and there” in newspapers, magazines, and the poetry circuit presses. Bill has printed three booklets, Boxing, Tissues of Lives, and Under the Influence. He is now working on Flint Farmer’s Market Romance.
Poet, musician Demetrius Daniel from Kensington, Georgia, has been a Washington Heights resident since 1990. He began reading poetry in 1996 at Nuyorican Poet’s Cafe. He received mention in a NY Times article (3/20/09), “Where Boundaries Are Melting, a Place to Celebrate Differences.”
