His recent decision to share these poems has led to his work appearing in numerous publications. To date he has had poems published in all 10 volumes of S.T. Joshi's Spectral Realms anthologies, Jason Brock's Bram Stoker-nominated anthology, The Darke Phantastique, and 2 editions of Centipede Press's Weird Fiction Review of the year.

In his second year, he was awarded the Old Gold Fellowship in Writing, which paid his tuition for a year.

Elise Matthesen was born and raised in the U.S. Upper Midwest and is still here. She is a disabled poet and a third generation factory worker. She strives to follow Neil Gaiman’s advice to make good art, particularly in her day job where she makes art jewelry with evocative names. Some of this art jewelry has inspired other people to write, which is what got Elise a World Fantasy Award nomination in 2009. She is very fond of sushi and of investigating the comfort food of many cultures, and she has a lingering suspicion that the liver paté reference in Lois McMaster Bujold’s work was aimed at her. Her most memorable day as a coffeehouse performance poet was the one when Dr. Maya Angelou unexpectedly became part of her birthday party before the Twin-Cities-wide poetry slam competition.
