Julie Doxsee holds a PhD from the University of Denver and is the author of Objects for a Fog Death (Black Ocean 2010) and Undersleep (Octopus Books 2008).  She teaches creative writing, literature, and academic writing at Koc University in Istanbul, Turkey, where she lives on the European side of the Bosphorus.


Curtis Jensen works and studies in Brooklyn, but he’d rather be somewhere else. He maintains a blog at


Jennifer Karmin’s text-sound epic, Aaaaaaaaaaalice, was published by Flim Forum Press in 2010. She curates the Red Rover Series and is co-founder of the public art group Anti Gravity Surprise.  Her multidisciplinary projects have been presented at festivals, artist-run spaces, community centers, and on city streets across the U.S., Japan, and Kenya. A proud member of the Dusie Kollektiv, she is the author of the Dusie chapbook Evacuated: Disembodying Katrina. Walking Poem, a collaborative street project, is featured online at How2. At home in Chicago, Jennifer teaches creative writing to immigrants at Truman College and works as a Poet-in-Residence for the public schools.


Eric Lindley is a bi-coastal artist/researcher/teacher, living with a foot in New York and a foot in Los Angeles. His work, ranging from critical/creative cross-genre writing, to biofeedback installation, to fluxus-style event scores, puppet-musicals, digital photography, experimentally-based research in cognitive linguistics, and electro-folk music, has appeared in/at: Eoagh, Antennae, Joyland, The Santa Monica Museum of Art, the CUNY graduate galleries, Telic Gallery, the Veleslavasay Panorama, Machine Project, REDCAT, the Knitting Factory, the Juliard School of Music, Pianos, the Smell, The Royal College of Music (UK), STEIM (Netherlands), and many other places that his body has occupied at one point or another. He has recently finished a book-length set of narrative, semi-fictional prose-poems, as well as two full-length albums of electronic folk music—the second as “Careful,” to be released March, 2010. Please consider submitting to his lovingly co-edited, online-and-soon-to-be-print literary journal, [out of nothing].


Ben Mirov is the author of I IS TO VORTICISM (New Michigan Press, 2010) and GHOST MACHINE (Cakerain, 2010). He is poetry editor of LIT Magazine and general editor of pax americana. He lives in Brooklyn.


Peter Spagnuolo is the author of the letterpress chapbooks A Squatter’s Midden and Ten by Fourteen, as well as Egg and Dart (2010). He lives in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, where his vices have wrestled his virtues to a draw.
