"The Missing Layer"Tyson Higel

Tyson Higel lives in Bellingham, WA where he works as a nurse. He began writing poetry in search of fluent self-expression, something he struggles with as a person who stutters. It's on the page that he's found his voice, with poems of his having appeared in York Literary Review, redrosethorns and Rabble Review, among others. His chapbook Confessions of a Stutterer (Finishing Line Press, 2024) is forthcoming in September. For more, visit
