Susan Gardner Dillon grew up in a coastal town in New England. After living in Alaska for several years, she and her husband, dog and cat took a road trip, for a year, across the USA & Canada in their school bus, living in fish-camps, parks, beaches, and lastly her father's orchard (where it is still parked with dreams of Further, and words). Now a third year graduate student in poetry at George Mason University, she lives and writes in DC, where she is an expressive arts poetry instructor at The Art and Drama Therapy
Institute, & the poetry editor for So to Speak: a feminist journal of language & art.
Pattie McCarthy co-founded & edits Beautiful Swimmer Press. She received her MA from Temple University. She is the author of two chapbooks: Octaves (ixnay press) & Choragus (Potes & Poets Press). Her first full-length collection will be out in the new year: bk of (h)rs from Apogee Press. She recently moved from Brooklyn, NY to Baltimore, MD, where she currently teaches at Towson University & Loyola College.
Carol Mirakove grew up as a poet in DC, having graduated from George Mason's MFA program, and, more significantly, having experienced the DC small-press community as a way of living. Her chapbook WALL, written during these years, is available from ixnay press. She now lives in Brooklyn. Recent poems appear or will appear in Outlet, Chain, The Gig, ixnay, PO-EP!, and on The East Village web site. A collaboration with photographer Doug Fogelson appears in Pom2, a new magazine edited by 4 GMU graduates and former DC dwellers.
