Lily Brown's first book, Rust or Go Missing, is forthcoming from Cleveland State University Poetry Center in fall of 2010. She lives in Chicago and in Athens, where she is pursuing a Ph.D. in English at the University of Georgia.
Michael Ford often writes poetry with the help of a calculator. He wishes he could add without one but can’t. He hopes that all of the counting and addition that goes into his poems is doing some good in the world. He thinks that 89 is a better number than most, and his current project is a series of 89-line poems. He is the author of two books of poems, Carbon (Ugly Duckling 2006) and Olympia Street (Trembling Pillow 2008). He no longer lives in New Orleans.
Joshua Marie Wilkinson's new collections are The Book of Whispering in the Projection Booth (Tupelo 2009) and Selenography (Sidebrow 2010) featuring Polaroids by Califone's Tim Rutili. He lives in Chicago and Athens, GA.
Shane Smith is a graphic designer living in Raleigh, NC. He graduated with a BFA in Illustration from East Carolina University. He was recently featured in Print Magazines Regional Design Annual, representing Raleigh with 2 logos. When not designing for the man, he plays with kittens, reads books at 25 words a minute, and gets serious about making people laugh at Dirty South Improv in Carrboro.
