Frank Thomas Rosen, an immigrant from East-Germany, is a nurse practitioner, former English teacher, and writer based in Ohio. He moved to the United States in 1997. After earning his BA and MA in English and TESL, he taught English and ESL at universities and community colleges in Northeast Ohio for over ten years.  In his poems, he addresses recurring themes of sociopolitical injustice, cross-cultural struggle, and civil rights. He has published one book of poetry: scratches (2003), German-English. His second book, auschwitz of the digital age and other poems, will be forthcoming on Cherry Castle Publishing in November of 2019. The Skinny format provides an excellent framework for Rosen’s minimalist style.
