Bernard Pearce (above left) is a Louisiana native born in the rural community of St. Martin Parish. He attended St. John’s College in Santa Fe, and returned to Louisiana to pursue a life immersed in music and art. He has owned and operated several music and arts venues in Lafayette, Louisiana. Bernard has recorded and released two full-length recordings with his band One Man Machine and has toured internationally with this group. He has participated in a residency sponsored and organized by The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council in New York City. Bernard has also read at the Allen Ginsberg memorial. Bernard has recently published a collection of poems, photos, and visual art entitled The Deed to My Bones.
Jim Trainer’s (above center) work has appeared in Raw Paw 6: Alien, The Waggle, Philadelphia Stories, Divergent Magazine, Anthology Philly, The Fredericksburg Literary and Art Review, Verbicide Magazine, A Series of Moments and PoetryInk. The release of September, his second full-length collection of poetry, coincides with the founding of Yellow Lark Press. Trainer lives in Austin, Texas where he serves as curator of Going For The Throat, a weekly publication of cynicism, outrage, correspondence, and romance.
Brian Grosz (above right) is a storyteller, actor, voiceover artist, painter, graphic designer, chef, cooking instructor, musician, tattoo enthusiast and an aging Eagle Scout trapped in a punk rock ethos. Squalor, his premiere collection of poetry and essays is out now. He currently calls Austin his home but still talks like a New Yorker—loud, fast, and crass.
