is quite the bohemian, with a penchant for roaming the globe and a
consuming love of people - their thoughts, tears, loves, deaths-as
well as a need to documenting his observations through writing and
black and white photography. 23, he graduates this year from the University
of South Florida. An obsessive musician, he plays any instrument he
can get his hands on, from piano and keyboards to guitar, mandolin,
recorder, and harmonica. He plays in a post-jazz ambient, experimental
free form trio called "figure versus ground" around the central Florida
area, their ultimate goal being to dredge up the far corners of their
psyche and spontaneously paint musical collages from an unrestricted
palette. Within the next year Ryan is looking to join, long-term,
a humanitarian organization providing resources to refugees and documenting
their struggles and situations. firstname.lastname@example.org

I'm male, expatriate and British, solemnly approaching thirty-eight,
and back writing poetry after nearly twenty years away. When not writing,
I eke out an existence as an English teacher on a tax-free salary
in the United Arab Emirates, most of which is spent on air-conditioning,
poetry books and three dysfunctional cats. I write mainly metered
verse - usually in the garden if the electricity man is about. email@example.com
I began writing poetry in the late 1960's and had a couple of poems
published. When the demands of family and career began to monopolize
most of my creative energies in the early 1970's I quit writing and
didn't start again until a couple of years ago when I retired. Since
then my poems have appeared in The Melic Review and a number
of other on-line and print journals, including Maelstrom, Eclectica,
The Poet's Canvas, The Horsethief's Journal, Niederngasse, The Shallow
End and others. The greatest pleasure of writing is the reaction
of readers so I always enjoy reader response and would welcome comments
