About Tin Coyote: A poignant journey traversing love, loss, memory and renewal, Tin Coyote is rooted in the inner landscape of the heart as well as the physical landscape of the poet’s beloved Oregon. The Oregon Coast, Warm Springs, Siuslaw River and Lake Paulina, among other iconic destinations at home and abroad, are vividly rendered backdrops to reflections and self-explorations. ‘Light reflects, refracts/creating space and possibility.’ Janice Rubin is a keen observer of self and environment.
Janice D. Rubin is a counselor and educator. She received her M.S. from the University of Oregon and her B.A. in English Literature. Her poems have been published in CIRQUE: A Literary Journal for the North Pacific Rim, the Austin International Poetry Anthology, Tiger’s Eye Poetry Journal, Glass: A Journal of Poetry, The Quizzical ChairAnthology, It Demands a Wildness of Me (Uttered Chaos Press, 2018) and many other journals. She was nominated for the Pushcart Poetry Prize in 2008. She’s the author of Transcending Damnation Creek Trail & Other Poems(Flutter Press, 2010) and Tin Coyote (Blue Light Press, 2017).
Kate Gray‘s passion stems from teaching, coaching writers, and volunteering as a writing facilitator with women inmates. She is the author of two poetry chapbooks, and one full-length collection, Another Sunset We Survive, which was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award. Her first novel, Carry the Sky stares at bullying without blinking. Now she is writing through Sylvia Plath in a novel-in-progress, narrating what led to The Bell Jar and Plath’s suicide attempt. Kate and her partner live in a purple house in Portland, Oregon with their two very patient dogs.
