About the authors:

Paulette is a native of Little Rock and attended Louisiana State University, where she received a BA in English. In 2008, she earned an MA in English from our graduate program here at UCA and later an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Florida. While taking classes toward the MA, she worked on Slant with then editor James Fowler as a Graduate Assistant. She now lives in Searcy and teaches literature and writing at Harding University.

Paulette writes and publishes under her given name, Paulette Guerin. She has published widely in literary journals and is included in the anthology Best New Poets 2018, published by the University of Virginia Press, and Wild Muse: Ozarks Nature Poetry, published by Cornerpost Press. Her initial book-length collection, Wading Through Lethe, was published by FutureCycle Press in 2022 and has received excellent reviews. About the collection one reader wrote, “This is an exquisite book of poetry. Paulette Guerin is a master. The lines are delicate yet exacting; beautiful and yet biting. And every poem evidences a deep sense of place and/or a sadly complicated relationship with family and the past. All around a very moving and even breathtaking volume.”

Dave Malone was born in Rolla, Missouri. In the mid-1970s when he was six, his family moved to rural Kansas to a small home that overlooked Tuttle Creek Lake. Discovering fossils along an ancient creekbed inspired an interest in history. Listening to Vincent Price’s CBS Radio Mystery Theater on his transistor inspired an interest in storytelling and the macabre. He also ate up books like the Dr. Doolittle series and Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time. In third grade, a teacher introduced haiku to a handful of eager students, and Dave was taken with this combination of math and writing. And his lifelong interest in poetry began. Encouraged by high school and college teachers to pursue a life of letters, Dave did just that by beginning his studies in Abilene, Texas, then going on to earn a bachelor’s degree from Ottawa University in 1991 and a master’s degree from Indiana State in 1994. For many years, he held a number of fun jobs, traveled, and lived in the Southwest and Midwest. In 2009, he came back to the Ozarks and loves writing about this place that means so much to him. Dave is the author of 11 works of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and drama. His first book is Poems to Love and the Body (Bliss Station Publishing, 1999) and his most recent book is You Know the Ones (Golden Antelope Press, 2017). Dave’s early writing was commended for its daring, sometimes ribald, nature. His later work has been praised for its refinement, heart, and strong sense of place.
