Zachary Jean Chartkoff


Zachary Jean Chartkoff lives with his wife, Shelby, and three cats in Grand Rapids, Michigan; across the street from a cemetery and close enough to downtown to walk to school where he is working on his occupational therapy degree.  Like almost every other writer and poet in the Western world he has had his work published both on-line and in numerous old-fashioned paper journals and anthologies.  Currently he is attempting to study the Okinawan language in order to work on a project concerning the Himeyuri, a group of teenage nurses who were sacrificed (like much of the rest of the island) by the Imperial Japanese Army in the ending days of World War II as the Allies invaded Okinawa.  Much of his writing can be found at his website "Myth of Arrival;" www.zacharychartkoff.com
