Simon Mermelstein is a poet and performer from Ann Arbor, MI.  His poetry has appeared in Atlanta Review, RHINO, Spillway, FreezeRay, Hawai’i Pacific Review, Cleaver, Mobius, Radius, The MacGuffin, Poems-For-All, and a healthy handful of other places.  He’s been nominated twice for a Pushcart Prize, and has just released his second chapbook, “The Continuing Adventures of Orthomax (now with BOMBASTIC PENTAMETER®!!!). In his spare time, he enjoys winning slams and getting published.

 

Mark Magoon is a poet, writer, and educator. His work—which has been nominated for Best of the Net and the Pushcart Prize—has appeared in Burrow Press, DIAGRAM, Midwestern Gothic, The Nervous Breakdown and many other venues. His book of poems The Upper Peninsula Misses You (ELJ Publications, 2015) is his first release bound by a single spine. Magoon teaches writing at UIC, tutors at the City Colleges, reviews works of poetry for Chicago Review of Books, and makes home in the Windy City with a wife that’s far too pretty.
