Brenda Coultas's amazing new book is A HANDMADE MUSEUM. Before becoming a poet, she was a farmer, a carny, a taffy maker, a park ranger, a waitress in a disco ballroom, and the second woman welder in Firestone Steel's history. Her poetry has appeared in numerous publications, including Conjunctions, Epoch, Fence, and Open City. Coultas lives one block from the Bowery in New York City.
Charlie O'Hay is the recipient of a 1995 Pennsylvania Council on the Arts fellowship in poetry. His work has appeared in over 100 literary publications including Gargoyle, Cortland Review, American Writing, and New York Quarterly. In 1994, as part of the poetry/performance group The Dead Pool, he recorded selections for the cassette release, Taedium Vitae. His chapbook Curio was published in 1996 by Kali Momma Press.
