Eben Eldridge

From the 1998 Jack Straw Writers Anthology: “I have spent most of my life in Los Angeles where I got my emotional passport. Now I can go anywhere. Now I live in Seattle. I have self-published four poetry books. Presently I’m working on a new book to be named later (I don’t want to ruin the alchemy). I am also a contributing writer and an on-air personality for Radio’, a syndicated radio show. Conceptually, I don’t call myself a writer, in fact the last thing I do is write my poems down. I prefer to speak. I prefer the energy of the human voice.”
