About the poets

Horowitz founded and manages Rose Alley Press. He earned degrees in philosophy and English from the University of Washington and an master’s in English from Vanderbilt University. His work has appeared in numerous journals, including The Lyric, Candelabrum, Exterminating Angel, ArtWord Quarterly, Quill & Parchment, and The Sporting News.

His books published by Rose Alley include “Strength & Sympathy”, “From Notebook to Bookshelf”, and six poetry collections: “Streetlamp”, “Treetop”, “Star”; “Resin from the Rain”; “Wildfire”, “Candleflame”; “Stars Beyond the Battlesmoke”; “Sky Above the Temple”; and his most recent, “Cathedral and Highrise”. He also edited the Rose Alley anthologies: “Limbs of the Pine”, “Peaks of the Range” and “Many Trails to the Summit”. Horowitz lives in Seattle.

Spence earned a degree in English from the University of Washington. Upon graduation, he served for four years as a Naval officer aboard the USS John F. Kennedy. Shortly afterward, Spence began his almost four-decade career as a Metro bus driver.
