Ben Doyle’s first collection of poems Radio, Radio won the 2000 Walt Whitman award selected by Susan Howe. His poems can be found in current or forthcoming issues of Boston Review, Tin House, Denver Quarterly, and 1913. His new manuscript, Dead Ahead, has been called “clusterfucked” by a reputable national press, and is forthcoming from Ahsahta. He lives with his wife, the poet Sandra Miller, and their canine in Roanoke, where he teaches Creative Expression to tough kids, when not commuting to Boise to be a Distinguished Visiting Writer.

Sandra Miller’s first book, Oriflamme, was published by Ahsahta Press in 2005. Selections from her new work—Chora—keep popping up in Aufgabe, Verse, Crowd, The Canary, and La Petite Zine. Miller teaches on one of those one-year things at Hollins University, where she lives on Maggie’s Farm with her husband, the poet Ben Doyle, and their dog, the dog Ronald Johnson, who stays with his girlfriend Megabytes when the human poets are in Boise.

Tom Orange is a Learning Specialist in the Disability Support
Services office and a Lecturer in Creative Writing at The George
Washington University. Dusie press recently published A Day in
Switzerland in its we/e chapbook series. Other recent work is
appearing in Court Green, 88: A Journal of Contemporary American
Poetry, The Word at Peek Review, 26 and Primary Writing.”

“i am forever and never
completing my dissertation on the early poetry of clark coolidge. i
blog on music, poetry, art and politics — not necessarily in that
order — at heuriskein (hyuRISkane, the greek verb meaning to discover
or find out). i tend to be one of those poets who works on book- or
chapbook-length “projects” rather than individual poems, but lately
i’ve not been able to settle on any new (or resuscitate otherwise
dormant) projects and so have ended up writing a few individual poems . . .”
