Brigit Truex & Dave Boles
Brigit Truex has lived in the four quarters of the States since beginning her writing career. In each locale she has also established workshops to help others hone their prose and poetry as well, but her primary focus is on poetry. Her mixed ethnic background (French Canadian-Abenak/Cree and Irish) has been a theme she continues to explore in her work, approaching it from various angles. She has been published in various international literary journals and anthologies. Her latest book, Strong as Silk: The Story of the Wakamatsu Tea and Silk Colony, was just released in 2012 by Lummox Press. She is a board member of Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers and Native Writers Circle of the Americas.

Founder of the magazine Primal Urge, he also created The Sacramento Free Press, Cruisin’ Magazine, Foothill Focus, Neural Impulse Publications, Cold River Press and Bodhidharma Publishing. His publications, editorials, writing, graphic design and artwork have won numerous awards in a thirty plus year career in publishing.
