Nate Pritts writes:

The poetry that makes up "Decoherence" (a long poem as well as the name for the individual segments) is my attempt to come to grips with & enact a view of personal history & memory which is both local (as in, located within the person) as well as expansive (literally out of control), both sequential (& hopefully cumulative) as well as unresolved.

Nate Pritts is the author of five books of poetry, most recently Sweet Nothing which Publishers Weekly describes as “both baroque and irreverent, banal and romantic, his poems […] arrive at a place of vulnerability and sincerity.” The founder and principal editor of H_NGM_N, an online journal and small press, he lives in Syracuse, New York.

Ken is an Assistant Professor at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. He has his M.F.A. in Painting from The University of Cincinnati, and his B.F.A. in Painting from Eastern Kentucky University. Awards Ken has won include The Chautauqua Institution Award in the 46th National Exhibition of American Art at The Chautauqua Center for the Visual Arts, NY, and Grand Prize in the All Kentucky Open Art Exhibition, hosted by the Lexington Art League. Ken was a finalist in the 4th Annual Miami University Young Painters’ Competition for the William and Dorothy Yeck Award.
