| David McIntire was born once and doesn't see the need to do it again. Growing up in the barren suburbs of Los Angeles he started writing and performing his poetry while still in high school. After living for a year in Sweden he became a roadie, a warehouse worker, a husband and a vegan, more or less in that order. David has performed, both as a poet and a musician, in some of the uglier venues of L.A. and his work has been published in zines, anthologies and online journals. He has featured at many of the L.A. area's finest poetry venues and since 2009, along with his wife Cat, has hosted Poetry Stew, a monthly open mic. In 2011 David released his third chapbook, Other, which featured totally unique, hand done artwork on each cover. His fourth chapbook, Exit Wounds, was recently released through International Word Bank Press.
