KENNETH J. PRUITT is a teacher at heart and works as a diversity professional in a children’s hospital. Recent publications can be found in Rain TaxiThe Ghazal Page, and Nine Mile. He lives in South St. Louis City with his wife and son. Find him on Twitter at @kennethjpruitt.

RON FREDMAN loves quiet. He has practiced meditation and writing poetry for many years now. He believes there is some ‘thing’ greater, loving, and throughout. He thinks poetry is one of many keys to unlock whatever it is that keeps him from getting to that some ‘thing’ greater. He loves listening for the tumblers falling into place. He grew up in St Louis and became active in the poetry circles of our town about 6 years ago. He is in a family business, and has been active in non-profit efforts most of his adult life. He believes life begins, one poem at a time.
