Laura LeHew is widely published. Her four collections include: Becoming (Another New Calligraphy), Willingly Would I Burn, (MoonPath Press), It’s Always Night, It Always Rains, (Winterhawk Press), and Beauty (Tiger’s Eye Press). She received the MFA in writing from California College of the Arts. She edits and owns Uttered Chaos, a poetry press, and co-hosts the reading series Poetry for the People. She also owns a computer forensics and network security consulting company. Laura always thought she’d be an astronaut.
To help make ends meet during graduate school, Whitey Lueck worked as a Male Cocktail Waitress–his actual job title–at the Moose Lodge in Corvallis, Oregon. These days, he is an instructor for the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Oregon, where his courses draw on his broad background in horticulture, landscape design, and ecology. His first collection of essays, Staying Put in Lane County, was published in late 2015. Two more collections are due out before the end of 2016.
Keli Osborn lives and writes in Eugene, where she also works with community organizations, hikes Mt. Pisgah, and bikes to the library. A resident of Eugene for more than 40 years, Keli grew up in four countries–attending 12 schools in a dozen years. She co-coordinates the More Voices and Windfall reading series. Her poems have appeared in Timberline Review, Elohi Gadugi Journal, and The Quotable, among others, and in the anthology, All We Can Hold.
