DORA MALECH is Assistant Professor at The Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins University. The Waywiser Press published her first full-length collection of poems, Shore Ordered Ocean, in 2009, and the Cleveland State University Poetry Center published her second collection, Say So, in 2011. Shore Ordered Ocean was long-listed for the International Dylan Thomas Prize. She has been the recipient of a Writer’s Fellowship at the Civitella Ranieri Center in Italy, and a 2010 Ruth Lilly Poetry Fellowship from the Poetry Foundation.

CHRISTIAN HAWKEY is the author of three books of poetry. His first book, The Book of Funnels, appeared in 2004 and won the Kate Tufts Discovery Award. His second book, a chapbook called HourHour was published by Delirium Press in 2005. Citizen Of, his third book, was released by Wave Books in the spring of 2007. He teaches in both the English department and the Writing for Publication, Performance, and Media Program at the Pratt Institute, New York.

JANE LEWTY is currently Visiting Assistant Professor of English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Amsterdam. She has an MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop and has held faculty positions at University College London (UK) and the University of Northern Iowa (USA). Her first poetry collection, Bravura Cool (1913 Press: 2013) was selected by Fanny Howe as the winner of the 1913 First Book Prize in 2011. She is also the co-editor of two essay collections, Broadcasting Modernism (University of Florida Press: 2009) and Pornotopias: Image, Desire, Apocalypse (Litteraria Pragensia: 2010)

MIA YOU lives in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Her poetry has been published as a chapbook, Objective Practice (Achiote Press, 2007), and is forthcoming as a book, I, Too, Dislike It (1913 Press). She is the Central Editor at Poetry International, Rotterdam.

MARJOLEIN VAN DER MEER is a text performer who likes to play with her voice. She uses poetry of others or words of her own to make compositions. Her work appears both in theatrical contexts, visual art and in the media.

OSCAR JAN HOOGLAND is a pianist/composer who makes music that cuts across genres: whimsical music with real bite and brainpower. Hoogland plays in a plethora of groups: The Ambush Party, EKE, The Job, in duo with drummer Han Bennink, in Gibson’s roiling Royal Improvisers Orchestra, and in the bicycle-portable, words-and-music street outfit, the Bakfietsband. He leads his own record player orchestra The Phonograph Orchestra.
