Author and poet Michael Pollick has created a special sampler of his humor essays, coffee essays and published poetry, called The Complete Michael Pollick Starter Kit

This collection includes pieces from his full-length works "Makebelieve Ballroom", "Growing Up Stowbilly" and "The (Recovered) Story House Coffee Essays".

The coffee essays were commissioned by a gourmet microroaster in Portland, Oregon. but remained unpublished in a drawer for ten years. The best of those essays is now available in print and ebook versions.

Michael Pollick grew up in the small Midwestern city of Stow, Ohio, and his "Growing Up Stowbilly" essays recount what it was like to grow up in the 60s, 70s and 80s. 

Pollick's first publication credit was a poem secretly submitted by his English teacher to Scholastic Magazine when he was 16. Since then, he has had works published in such literary magazineds and journals as The Iconoclast, Midwest Poetry Review, MOSAIC, Miller's Pond, Elk River Review, Whatever Remembers Us and the political poetry anthology Will Work For Peace.
