Kim Triedman’s first poetry collection – "bathe in it or sleep" – was named winner of the 2008 Main Street Rag Chapbook Competition and semi-finalist for the 2008 Black River Chapbook Competition. In the past year, she has also been named finalist for the 2007 Philbrick Poetry Award, finalist for the James Jones First Novel Fellowship, and, most recently, semifinalist for the 2008 Parthenon Prize for Fiction. She’s recently been nominated for the anthology “Best New Poets 2009.” Her poems have been published widely in literary journals and anthologies here and abroad.
Mike Nelson is a poet, father, former Asian woman, and heckle-fodder for most of us poetry jerks every time he so engagingly embraces the stage. He is the author of two books of poetry, "The One in the Middle" and "Sometimes at Night", which is alternatively known as "The One with the Kitty", which foreshadows a potential future omnibus collection of his greatest works, called "The One in the Middle of a Kitty". Some say he enjoys wearing the color brown. Other say he is forced to wear muted tones, lest he capture all attention of every room he enters. He likes hugs and huevos rancheros.
