Native to Missouri, Nicholas Kriefall’s poetry has appeared in Enizagam, The Conium Review, Barrow Street, The Ampersand Review, Poetry Quarterly, Writing TomorrowThe Healing Muse, and The Spoon River Poetry Review, among other journals.  Much of his writing has been influenced from living in the midwest at his childhood home in Franklin County, surrounded by creeks and woods, and accompanied with a boundless desire to explore.

Aside from being a poet, he is also a self-employed artist whose paintings have been exhibited and represented by prestigious galleries in Atlanta, Chicago, Kansas City, and St. Louis, where he currently resides.  His work can be viewed at
