Trause Janet Kolstein, whose poetry has been Instigatorzine, Lips, The Poetry of Place: North Jersey in Poetry, and the Newstead Abbey Byron Society Review. She is a member of both the American and International Byron Society. An artist as well, she is a member of the hob’art cooperative gallery in Hoboken, NJ, and exhibits throughout the tristate area. Her collage work is featured on the cover and throughout the #10 anthology.
