David King was raised on the sandy shores of California. He currently teaches at The City College. He likes his music loud, and lives in New York. He will be reading with Rudy Baron, who co-founded Downtown Brooklyn, the literary journal of the Brooklyn campus of Long Island University, in 1992, and served as editor until 1998. He served as an instructor of English at that campus for a number of years, before pursuing a law degree at Cardozo School of Law in New York City, which he completed in 2001. Since then he decided he hates the law, and has given up on the legal world, and gone back to teaching and writing. He has been published in a number of journals, and many moons ago published two chapbooks, Shirts and Shaved Armpits and The Lingo of Beer. He currently lives in Westchester and has two beautiful daughters, who he dotes on regularly. Wayne Berninger teaches writing and literature at the Brooklyn Campus of Long Island University, where he edits the English Department’s literary magazine, Downtown Brooklyn. He is working on a series of poems set in a zombie-besieged, post-apocalyptic landscape.
