Poet and publisher BRETT RUTHERFORD has lived in Weehawken NJ, New York City, and Providence, RI. During his Manhattan years, he founded The Poet’s Press to promote the work of lesser-known but deserving poets. The press is active in print and on-line, with 177 publications to date, and 20 new titles scheduled for 2009 ( ).

Brett is a poet, novelist, and playwright, with a focus on the Gothic and neo-Romantic. Night Gaunts, a play about horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, was staged in Heidelberg, Germany in 2006, and broadcast as a radio drama in Boston in 2005. His verse play, Carlota, Empress of Mexico, was given a staged reading by The Writers' Circle of Providence in the summer of 2007. His most recent books of poetry are Things Seen in Graveyards (2007) and Doctor Jones and Other Terrors (2008).

During a ‘back to school’ adventure, he completed his Master’s Degree in English at the University of Rhode Island in 2007. He works for the University in distance learning and teaches literature in the Women’s Studies Department.
