Poems by Benjamin Morris, Paintings by Myrtle Von Damitz III. A mysterious wilderness, racked by disaster. A group of travelers, seeking the truth. An ageless conflict and a fateful choice. A book-length poem inspired by the landscape of coastal Louisiana, Ecotone is a journey into the unknown, through the wondrous, by the lost.

A native of Mississippi, Benjamin Morris is a writer and researcher, and the author of two books of poetry and one book of nonfiction. His writing appears widely in the United States and Europe, and has received academic and creative fellowships from such places as the Mississippi Arts Commission, Tulane University, and A Studio in the Woods in New Orleans, where he lives. Myrtle von Damitz III was raised in Vermont and California, and settled in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1998. She lived and worked there until moving to Oregon in late 2012; she divides her time between her new life in the western wilds and her ties to her adopted hometown of New Orleans. She is a self taught artist and curator who is known for bringing diverse artists and disciplines together in incongruous atmospheres. In 2017 she re-settled in Eugene, Oregon after a stint as a long haul truck driver.
