Geoffrey Young is the author of Fickle Sonnets, Lights Out, Admiral Fever, Pockets of Wheat, Rocks and Deals, and Subject to Fits. He lives in the Berkshires where he runs The Geoffrey Young Gallery, an art space celebrated in such publications as Artforum and The New York Times. Publisher's Weekly writes of his recent book Lights Out: "Young's great strength, like that of his compadres Michael Gizzi and Clark Coolidge, is his updated use of Kerouac's "spontaneous bop prosody," an intricate and seemingly improvised incantation of word and syllable whipped up to ecstatic length." Young is also publisher of The Figures-- one of the most important literary presses of the last thirty years.

Terence Winch is the author of three books of poetry: The Drift of Things, The Great Indoors, and Irish Musicians/American Friends. His most recent book, That Special Place: New World Irish Stories, is a collection of non-fiction stories drawn from his life as a musician playing traditional Irish music with Celtic Thunder-- a band he started with his brother Jesse in 1977. Celtic Thunder's second album, The Light of Other Days, won the prestigious INDIE award for Best Celtic Album. His writings have appeared in more than 20 anthologies of poetry, prose, and non-fiction, and in journals and newspapers such as The Paris Review, New American Writing, American Poetry Review, Arshile, Shiny, Verse, The Washington Post, The Washingtonian, and The Village Voice.
