Marty Esworthy
is a poet and performance artist currently involved in an epic project called "Thinking' 'bout Ng," in which he thinks everyday about a woman who lives her life wantonly on the Internet, via a live-cam.  He doesn't watch. Just thinks about it. Her! Daily. Keeps it pure. Calls her Ng, for Net Girl. This performance, ongoing since 1998, will last until 2003.

A MegaeraAward poetry winner, his poetry and photography have appeared in numerous books, magazines and journals, including Miserere review, logodaedalus, Syzsgy, Diffference Engine, Quasar Review and Experimental Forest.

His work, published both online and offline, has been translated into twelve different languages, including COBOL and FORTRAN.

Esworthy is an ex-Sagittarius, who "has finally seen the light! Know I'm sayin'?" An enjoyer of coffee, his favorite colour is turquoise. View Photo Email: Marty

Lynn Fetterolf

Glamour, adventure, triumph and tragedy, Lynn Fetterolf has certainly had her share, and she's poured it all into her poetry which ranges from the horrors of war to the humor of being "Hefty at Sixty". A cross between Khalil Gibran and Irma Bombeck, she's not had to imagine life, she's lived it. Her exotic expatriate life spanned 20 years and made her an excellent witness to the modern history of the Middle East including the civil war in Lebanon.

Lynn currently has two books of poetry in print, Letters To My Love and Through Sand And Sorrow, Memories of the Middle East, her autobiography. Through Sand And Sorrow is nearly sold out in its second printing and is endorsed by the Pennsylvania Poetry Society.

Widely published, you can find Lynn's work in Writers' Digest magazine, Prolog, Harrisburg Review, Digges' Choice and Beauty For Ashes Poetry Review just to name a few.
