Del Ray Cross has
been asked on numerous occasions to contribute to his own poetry journal. he
would like to send his electronic appreciation to John Tranter for blessing
the world with Jacket magazine.

Jamine Ergas is
a San Francisco Bay Area native who began writing poetry as a way to vent about
the fact that she couldn’t always have exactly what she wanted. she finds much
joy in expressing her internal stirrings for others’ consumption. snack cautiously!

Diane Harman is
a fantabulous ShampooArtist. she lives in New Concord, Ohio with her husband and her cat and her fishies.


Carolyn Gregory
has lived in Boston for nearly 20 years. she’s published
in American Poetry Review and Seattle Review and works at Massachusetts
General Hospital.

Cambridge, Massachusetts.

and ‘Winter District,’ will soon be published by Little Esther (Aus)
and Potes and Poets Press (US), respectively.


Angelo Monaco wants
you to invite him to your next party. he also wants you to keep in mind he lives
in Cambridge, Massachusetts.


Alex O’Neil works
at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts. she remains a reluctant poet and a procrasting
writer who usually writes from provocation. she began writing short stories
and poems in her early teens. her dream is to publish short stories and perhaps
a novel or two.

Michele Pagen can
often be found somewhere in the wilds of southwestern Pennsylvania, maybe even
grading a paper or two. this is her first rendezvous with a poetry journal.

lives and writes in her brand new home in Dorchester, Massachusetts, under the
watchful eye of her cat Melvin.

Suzy Saul converses
with her automobile to and from her home in Jamaica Pond, Massachusetts.


Zinovy Vayman is
a world traveler and a haibun-ist extraordinaire.

Beth Woodcome
feels horribly blah when it comes to bios. she lives in
Brookline, Massachusetts and has been published in Worcester Magazine
and Meanie and was an editor for Suffolk University’s lit mag
for 3 years.

Kirby Wright is
a former winner of The Ann Fields Poetry Prize, The Academy of American Poets
Award, and the Robert Browning Award for Dramatic Monologue. his first novel
