Born on New Year’s eve of 1954, Steven Curtis Lance describes himself as “the son of a hitman and the prettiest girl he ever saw.” Educated as a priest, he began writing poetry at age 15, and after listening to Beethoven suddenly decided to set his words into music and become a composer. He also worked as an a cap- pella specialist and a reviewer for the Choral Journal. Once he mentioned that his life “has shrunk down small in a way, while in another reaching out through the universe.” According to him he now writes poetry exclusively, “disappointed by the church and church music and finding myself at my end as at my beginning, a poet.”


Steven is currently writing his “(work in progress…)” which he dedicates to his Laughing Daffodil.


Nick Lisgaris was born in the Greek island of Kalymnos in the Aegean Sea, but now divides his time between Greece and the United States. He has been writing poetry as a contributor for www.publicliterature.org. He writes “with freedom avoiding the tyranny of the language.”
