Howard W. Robertson is a poet and fiction writer who lives in Eugene, Oregon. He has written ten books of poems and three books of fiction. His writing has won numerous prizes, has been published in many literary journals, and has been anthologized often. His latest novel, Love in the Cretaceous, is a love story set in a dinosaur park in Oregon a hundred years in the future. It’s been named a Book Excellence Award Finalist. Publishers Weekly calls the novel “rollicking, fresh, engaging, offbeat, zany, memorable.”
Tom Titus is a writer, runner, gardener, grandfather, and seeker of wild things and wise quiet spaces. He pays the mortgage as a research biologist and instructor at the University of Oregon. His memoir Blackberries in July: A Forager’s Field Guide to Inner Peace is a paean to Oregon, a year-long chronology of the hunting and gathering of his spirit. Tom’s writings have appeared in Oregon Quarterly magazine and in the anthology Forest Under Story.
