Charles Banks Jr. has been indulging in poetry since age twelve. He has self-published three collections of poetry and two chapbooks of poems. His work has been included in Don’t Forget the ChapStick (published by Bank-Heavy Press), Collected Whispers (published by the International Library of Poetry), Poets Amongst Us (published by Aquillrelle Press) and Online at In Stereo Press: The Audio Zine. After successfully defeating cancer in recent months, Charles has started up Spilt Ink Poetry, a small, poetry press that strives to help poets publish their work, encourage a greater appreciation and fondness for the written word, and further advocate social diversity.
