MILWAUKEE, WI. January 4, 2012 -- Illinois and Iowa fictionista Tom Janikowski and Milwaukee poetess Denise Janikowski-Krewal have launched an exciting, new collaborative blog, "the lost beat" at http://1lostbeat.blogspot.com/ . The site will feature short experimental fiction and poetry.
Janikowski and Janikowski-Krewal are cousins who both grew up on the south side of Milwaukee but went most of their lives unaware of the other's existence and writing. After a random meeting in the summer of 2010 they began to lay the groundwork for a collaboration of this nature.
More information of Mrs. Janikowski-Krewal can be found in her biographical entry at the Literary Underground Wikipedia.
