Darren C. Demaree’s poetry collection, The Pony Governor, will be published this July by After the Pause. If you want a brief taste of The Pony Governor, hear Darren reading from the book’s opening sequence on YouTube. Hannah Stephenson, author of In the Kettle, The Shriek, says “The Pony Governor overflows with music and intelligence.” All proceeds from The Pony Governor go toward the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education.

Darren was a contributor to our Fall 2013 issue (Vol. 2, No. 2). He’s is the founding editor of AltOhio and Ovenbird Poetry, and he’s managing editor of the Best of the Net Anthology.
