The November issue of thedetroiter.com LIT section isn't even
up on the web site yet, and yet here I sit readying the December issue.
Why you ask? Well
I was sitting in my study minding my own business
when I felt someone or something watching me. I looked around the
room, but didn't see anyone or anything for that matter. But then
out of the corner of my eye I saw a stack of submissions eyeballing
me. I don't know what compelled me to return the stare
pleased with what I found. - Eric Novack, Editor
Lilith by Rob McCabe

About the Authors
Rob McCabe is a professional
storyteller and performer. He possesses a background in theatre and
was at one time a youth services librarian before embarking on his
exciting career as a fulltime storyteller. Mr. McCabe loves folktales,
fairy tales, world mythology, mysteries, and ghost and horror stories.
Michael Dunwoody, former high
school English curricular chairman. Adjunct professor of creative
writing at the University of Windsor for ten years. Won an Author's
Award for short fiction in 1987. Published in various small literary
magazines in Canada and the U.S. Currently Michael is working on a
suite of poems about Detroit.
Marc Dones forgot to send us
a bio, but that doesn't hinder his work in the least. We (the Elitists)
have been sitting on his poetry for sometime now and we are pleased
that we can finally share it with Detroit. If you're ever up in Birmingham
in need of a coffee fix, stop at Java Hutt because you'll probably
have a chance to meet this talented young writer.
Elizabeth Witte was born and
raised in Missouri where she enjoyed collecting broken dishes by the
creek and exploring rusted out cars left behind after a tornado many
years before she was born. She now resides in Detroit where she works
at the Metro Times. She is co-editor of the Yellow Elephant (now on
hiatus) and has been published in several literary journals including
the RC Review, Bombay Gin, and The Stolen Purse. She greatly dislikes
some things. She thoroughly enjoys that which she enjoys.
