Michael Spence spent a hitch as a junior naval officer aboard the aircraft carrier USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67), then returned to Seattle, where he spent thirty years driving public-transit buses in the Seattle area. He has three poetry collections: The Spine (Purdue University Press, 1087), Adam Chooses (Rose Alley Press, 1998), and Crush Depth (Truman State University Press, 2009). The Bus Driver’s Threnody was a finalist for The New Criterion Poetry Prize. In 1990, Spence was awarded a Creative Writing Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, and he has received half a dozen nominations for a Pushcart Prize. His work has appeared in many magazines, including The American Scholar, The Chariton Review, The Gettysburg Review, The Hopkins Review, The Hudson Review, Literary Imagination, Measure, The New Criterion, The New Republic, The North American Review, Poetry, Poetry Northeast, The Sewanee Review, The Southern Review, Tampa Review, Tar River Poetry, and The Yale Review.
