About the Authors
Press is located in western Massachusetts.
It began in 1993 as writer and poet Larry Kimmel's
desktop publishing business and self-published poetry
chapbooks. Since then we have expanded to include
offerings by other local writers, still maintaining a
strong emphasis on poetry.
Currently Winfred Press is not reading submissions;
we have a substantial backlog and would like to give our
full attention to the current and upcoming lists before
venturing into new territory.
Larry Kimmel was born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. He holds
degrees from Oberlin Conservatory and Pittsburgh University,
and has worked at everything from steel mills to libraries. He
has been a published poet for the past thirty-five years and
has nine collections of poetry and one novel.

I Step Out On My Porch Near Midnight
flecked by moon made mica.
the roar of the woods
is faint tonight;
And faint, too,
of my leather jacket—faint
As the rigging of a galleon
heard across the seas of time ....
Orion faintly flickers.
Where the grass is luxurious, she lies
with an arm across her eyes, her skirt to mid-thigh.
What the mind can't spit, you live with
as a kind of shrapnel or you digest it. Food
for a healing growth. Enabled by the cooperation
of opposing wings, a butterfly lilts about her.
We did what we could
read their letters, figured their taxes
good neighbors they -
now just a cellar hole
and the lilacs in spring.
Crossing the Connecticut River
A day of rain
in February and
from the bridge
