Bill Tope

United States

"Bill Tope is a retired public assistance caseworker living in Wood River, Illinois, a sleepy hamlet across the river from the city of St. Louis, Missouri (almost in the very shadow of the Gateway Arch). He has been variously published: Children Church and Daddies; Down in the Dirt Magazine; Wordgathering; Rattapallax; Potato Soup Journal; The Avocet, etc.

He has, during his illustrious (misspent) life worked as a construction worker, a cook, a factory worker, even as a nude model for college art classes. He lives with his unflappable cat, Baby."
