Mike Pantano wrote his first poems on a Smith-Corona typewriter. When first out of college, he worked at a small printing company as a proofreader, but in fact used his employment there to transfer his poems onto typeset galleys so he could see what a poem would look like in published form. His work has appeared or is forthcoming in Third Wednesday, San Pedro River Review, the Museum of Americana, Gravel, Flint Hills Review, Slipstream and elsewhere. A husband and father, he lives with his wife and an assortment of animals in Cincinnati, Ohio.
