Mark Wallace is the author of more than fifteen books and chapbooks of poetry, fiction, and essays. Temporary Worker Rides A Subway won the 2002 Gertrude Stein Poetry Award and was published by Green Integer Books. His critical articles and reviews have appeared in numerous publications, and he has co-edited two essay collections, Telling It Slant: Avant Garde Poetics of the 1990s, and A Poetics of Criticism. Most recently he has published a short story collection, Walking Dreams (2007), and a book of poems, Felonies of Illusion (2008). Forthcoming in early 2011 is his second novel, The Quarry and The Lot.
Geoffrey Young has been creating an astonishing body of work for well over thirty years while running a gallery & being the publisher of The Figures Press, one of the most provocative & influential presses of the late 20th century. He has been known as a poets’ poet & a painters’ poet, but these terms undermine the swath that his poetry has cut through our world. It is high time that we read him as the demands his work offers us . . . read & leap!.
Brian Fitzpatrick has been living in DC for 7 years. He has recently completed his Masters Degree in Literature at George Mason University, where he also teaches undergraduate English. He is a poetry reader for the literary journal Phoebe and will be pursuing his MFA in poetry beginning this Fall.
