Karla Kelsey is the author of "Knowledge, Forms, the Aviary," which was selected by Carolyn Forché for the 2005 Sawtooth Poetry Prize. It was published in 2006 by Ahsahta Press. Her second full-length book, "Iteration Nets," has just been released from Ahsahta Press. Work from this book can be found in journals such as jubilat, Denver Quarterly, the New Review of Literature, and Bird Dog. In addition, poems from this manuscript are included in the anthology "Joyful Noise: An Anthology of American Spiritual Poetry." New poems can be read on-line in Gutcult and Harp & Altar. "Little Dividing Doors in the Mind," a chapbook, was published by Noemi Press in 2005. Two recent chapbook projects are out from Cannibal's Narwhal press and Pilot Press.

Jeff Bagato is a native Washingtonian, poet, performer, and concert promoter. He directs the Panic Research Agency (, an umbrella for creative projects including the Electric Possible (concert series for experimental, free improvisation, and electronic music); and the experimental music groups Spaceships Panic Orbit, Violet Panic, and DJ Panic. From 1989-2002, he edited and self-published Molemagazine, which covered underground music, outsider art, crackpot thought, and the counterculture. Recent books include "latest headlines: no-ku poems" and "Savage Night and Other Stories."
