Starting in the Northeast, Ray Keifetz has crisscrossed the country multiple times and currently resides in Northern California. Along the way he attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, lived in Italy for a year, took up furniture building, and fell in love with words. His poems and stories have appeared in The Ashland Creek Press, Bitter Oleander, Briar Cliff Review, Kestrel, the Louisville Review, Other Voices and more and have twice been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best New Poets. NIGHT FARMING IN BOSNIA (The Bitter Oleander Press, 2018), his first poetry collection, grew out of the calamitous ending of the 20th century and the equally dark beginning of the 21st. However, he is quick to quote one of his favorite authors Malcolm Lowry It is not only darkness I see, but admits it takes effort.
John Yunker is a writer of short stories, novels, and plays. The Tourist Trail began as a short story by the same name and won the Phoebe Journal 2010 Fiction Prize.

His one-act play Little Red House was published in the literary journal Mason's Road, and produced in 2014 by the Studio Players Theatre in Lexington, Kentucky. He is editor of the anthology Among Animals: The Lives of Animals and Humans in Contemporary Short Fiction and is co-founder of Ashland Creek Press, a publisher devoted to environmental and animal rights literature.
