Tom Pescatore can sometimes be seen wandering along the Walt Whitman bridge or down the sidewalks of Philadelphia's old Skid Row. He might have left a poem or two behind to mark his trail. His debut novel the Boxcar Bop is available now from RunAmok Books.
SK Grout grew up in Auckland, New Zealand and has lived in Frankfurt, Germany and Norwich, England. She splits her time as best she can between London and Auckland. She is the author of the micro chapbook “to be female is to be interrogated” (2018, the poetry annals). Her work also appears in Landfall, Crannóg, Banshee Lit, The Interpreter’s House, Parentheses Journal, L’Éphémère Review and elsewhere. Wanderlust, eco-living, social justice, queer love stories and writing remain priorities of her life. These topics fill most of her twittering at @indeskidge.
