Quintet from Ninety-six Press:

A collection of chapbooks by five young poets from South Carolina. This collection features the poems that I wrote upon moving back to the South Carolina in November 2001 after spending three years in London. I was also influenced by 9/11 which happened about this same time.

The other author's in the collection include:

Vera Gómez, the daughter of Mexican immigrants, is a native Texan who now works in corporate communications in upstate South Carolina. She has been prominent in the world of performance poetry on the local, regional, and national levels.

Joel McCollough has worked both in desktop publishing and as a teacher in the public schools. His poems, widely published in literary magazines, often reflect his lifelong residence in the Greenville area.

Terri McCord, recipient of the 2001-2002 Literary Arts Fellowship in Poetry from the South Carolina Arts Commission, often writes about parent-child relationships and the place of animals in our lives.

Kimberly Jane Simms, a celebrated performance poet, has also published in a number of literary journals. She founded literary non-profit Wits End Poetry in Greenville, SC

Brian Slusher, author of “Paranormal Romance” (below), teaches high school drama and English. His poems, frequently published in literary journals, are notable for the breadth and playfulness of their author’s imagination.
