About the author:
William James Lindberg is more of a word musician than a page poet. The experience of words oscillating through his bones is the kindling that feeds the blazing frenzy of his pen. He learned the meaning of the word, poet by living on Capitol Hill in Seattle from 2003 to 2011. There he performed poetry at nearly every venue in the city. He also busked his word for a stint on street corners at Seattle's famous Pike Place Market.

William believes that writing is best produced in community with others. He team-taught a workshop with Ahmed Teleb (Verbal Expression Lab in 2011) at Seattle Central Community College, coordinated a writers' circle (2010 - 2011), co-organized a critique group with Carrie Albert (2006 - 2011), emceed a spoken word open mic in McMinnville & Newberg, and produced a cable access TV show that featured writers & artists (2001 - 2003).

William currently lives a Henry David Thoreau fantasy in rural Grand Ronde, Oregon. In the solitude of a hidden valley he gardens words, publishes a zine called Randomly Accessed Poetics, publishes a chapbook series, and tends his websites rapoetics.com & penhead-press.com.

Found On Bathroom Walls
 

Authored by William James Lindberg
Edition: 1

What is it about remarks on bathroom walls - you can't not read them. They are not all gems of literature but sometimes, something will stick. Found on Bathroom Walls scribbles its wisdom in our psyche, lets us savor each phrase, each sound created by words found and folded in together on the page. William is a true poet, a person who finds beauty in words everywhere and can present them to us like a plate of the finest caviar with all the trimmings. A teardrop in time turns into a poem about his father, moving home turns into an epic worthy of Charlton Heston.

WARNING: some of the works contained in this book use naughty language like the "F word," and other explicit words that might be found on a Bathroom Wall at a one pump gas station.
