Frank Beltrano has recited poems from as long ago as grade one. In high school, he wrote for the local paper, the Sault Daily Star, as a teen writer. In university, he believed that he was a short story writer who would eventually write novels. But, after moving to London eight years ago, he has instead focused on poetry. The first poem he sent out, "The Days of Angry," won an honourable mention in a literary contest and was published in Toward the Light in the summer of 2007. Since then, he has been published in a number of collections and literary journals and has read publicly across Ontario and in he United States.
