David Holper has done a little bit of everything: taxi driver, fisherman, dishwasher, bus driver, soldier, house painter, bike mechanic, bike courier, and teacher. He has published a number of stories and poems, including two collections of poetry, The Bridge (Sequoia Song Publications) and 64 Questions (March Street Press).  His poems have appeared in numerous literary journals and anthologies, and he has recently won several poetry competitions, in spite of his contention that he never wins anything.  He lives in Eureka, California, far enough the madness of civilization that he can still see the stars at night and hear the Canada geese calling.  He served as the City of Eureka’s first poet laureate from August 2019-August 2021.
