TONI ASANTE LIGHTFOOT is a poet, educator, mentor, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, friend, and student. She is currently working on her Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. She is in the middle of coauthoring 3 children's books and is putting together a 21st anniversary reunion for a poetry series she led in Washington, DC. Lightfoot travels to Benin, West Africa in December.
Born in Toledo, Ohio, in 1969 CARL ADAMSHICK grew up primarily in Harvard, Illinois. Adamshick’s debut collection, Curses and Wishes (Louisiana State University Press, 2011), was selected by Marvin Bell for the 2010 Walt Whitman Award. In 2012, the collection won the Stafford/Hall Award for Poetry from Literary Arts. About his work, Bell writes: "Reading these poems is like breathing fresh air. Carl Adamshick’s voice is instantly engaging. A sophisticated ear." His latest book is titled Saint Friend (McSweeney’s Poetry Series).
