Joel Allegretti (www.joelallegretti.com) is the author of four collections of poetry: Europa/Nippon/New York: Poems/Not-Poems (Poets Wear Prada, 2012); Thrum (Poets Wear Prada, 2010); Father Silicon (The Poet’s Press, 2006), selected by The Kansas City Star as one of 100 Noteworthy Books of 2006, a list that included novels by Cormac McCarthy and Thomas Pynchon; and The Plague Psalms (The Poet’s Press, 2000). Allegretti’s poems have appeared in Smartish Pace, PANK, The New York Quarterly, Maintenant: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing & Art, MARGIE, Fulcrum and many other national journals, as well as in The Best American Poetry blog. He is represented in three new anthologies: Divining Divas (Lethe Press, 2012), alongside Mark Doty, David Trinidad, and Timothy Liu; Token Entry: New York City Subway Poems (Smalls Books, 2012), which includes work by Langston Hughes, Hart Crane, Alicia Ostriker, and Edward Hirsch; In the BLACK, In the RED (Helicon Nine, 2012), which includes poems by Dana Gioia, Brenda Hillman, Ted Kooser, and Philip Levine. Allegretti’s fiction has appeared in Think Journal, The Adroit Journal, autolycus: rogue literary journal and Petrichor Machine, among other periodicals. His Aqua: A Play in One Repeated Act was a semifinalist in the 2010 KNOCK International Play Contest. He wrote the texts for three song cycles by Frank Ezra Levy, whose symphonic work is released on Naxos American Classics. Allegretti is a member of the Academy of American Poets and ASCAP

James Arthur’s first book of poems, Charms against Lightning, was published this past October by Copper Canyon Press, as a Lannan Literary Selection. Individual poems from Charms against Lightning have appeared in The New Yorker, The New Republic, Poetry, and The American Poetry Review. He has received the Amy Lowell Travelling Poetry Scholarship, a Wallace Stegner Fellowship, an Amy Clampitt Residency, and a Discovery/The Nation Prize. Copper Canyon's catalog describes Charms against Lightning, as "a poetic bildungsroman organized around the theme of awakening from a 'ghost world' in order to journey toward a definition of selfhood" and his poems as "romantic in spirit and contemporary in outlook ... rhythmical, elastic, and expressive." During the 2012-13 academic year, James will be a Hodder Fellow at the Lewis Center for the Arts in Princeton.
