'''Artie Gold''' (15 January 1947—14 February 2007) was a Montreal-based Canadian poet.  He rose to prominence in the 1970s, during which time he published several books of poetry and contributed to various anthologies. His best-known collection of verse is ''The Beautiful Chemical Waltz''.

F.N. Wright (b. 16 DEC ) is an American author, poet and artist. He is the author of several novels (''The Whorehouse'', 1977, ''Flight to Freedom'', 1986 and ''The Music Sluts'', 2005). Wright's art and writing have been widely published online and in print.  
-
Gold was born to Jewish parents in Brockville, Ontario in 1947, and grew up in Outremont, a Montreal neighbourhood of various socioeconomic classes but which is predominantly upper middle-class. His father was a businessman who made trips to China in the early 1970s, long before such an economic practice became popular.  He lost his mother at a young age and was subject to many other “family difficulties.” Reportedly, as a child in the 1950s, Gold was treated at the Allan Memorial Institute, a Montreal psychiatric facility. As a result, there is some contemporary speculation that he may have undergone the controversial LSD (and other) experiments of the institution's director, Dr. Ewen Cameron, an employee in the CIA's MKULTRA program.  
+
Wright was born and raised in Mattoon, an agricultural community, in South Central Illinois. At an early age he was encouraged to explore art. Wright credits his first grade teacher, Edna Windau, for instilling an interest in photography.

As an adolescent, Wright was bored with school. If his teachers couldn’t find him in class they checked the library. Wright said he learned more there, surrounded by books, than he did in class. The writing began at a young age. At age 10, Wright and two boys, who were brothers, invented a baseball game and he wrote the sports page for the imaginary game. He also developed the habit of writing vignettes about things that happened during the day from a satiracle point of view. Wright dropped out of school and left home at sixteen and at age seventeen enlisted in the Navy.
