Poet Bios:

John Findura received his BA from The William Paterson University of New Jersey and his MFA from The New School. His poetry and criticism have appeared or are forthcoming in Mid-American Review, Verse, Fugue, GlitterPony, and Agriculture Reader, among others. He teaches at Passaic County College in Paterson, New Jersey and lives nearby with his wife, their puppy and a charm of finches.

Joan Biddle is a writer and editor. She earned a Masters in Writing at Johns Hopkins and an MFA in Writing at The New School, both concentrating in poetry. She has lived in Memphis, Austin, Paris, Baltimore and New York City. Her poems have appeared in the Red Booth Review, Small Spiral Notebook and Half Drunk Muse.

Peter Bogart Johnson received an MFA in Creative Writing from The New School in 2006, where he studied poetry. He currently works as a grant writer and fundraiser for a New York City non-profit and co-edits the biannual literary journal LIT. Originally from California, he now lives in Brooklyn with his wife and their dog.

Richard Hutzler is a founding member of the New Visceral Realists, whose manifesto is forthcoming. In the meantime, in his shadow life, he is a teacher and fundraiser, and sometimes an actor and director. Most of all, however, he is a writer. He was born in Pittsburgh, that venerable city divided by rivers, and now lives and works and plays in New York, that venerable city surrounded by rivers.

Mike Reilly works in an office computing the exchange rate of dollars to karma. If he was a hot dog, he'd eat himself.
