Heather Fuller’s fourth book is Dick Cheney’s Heart, from Edge Books. She recently she had the honor of writing the intro to Buck Downs’ selected poems, Unintended Empire, and contributed to the #MeToo Poetry Collective. She divides time between the North Carolina coast and Baltimore, where she works as a cardiac RN and sidelines in animal advocacy, one pit bull at a time.

Suzanne Stein’s poetry publications and performance documents include The Kim Game, TOUT VA BIEN, and Passenger Ship; her book-length poem New Sutras is forthcoming this summer. With the poet Steve Benson, she is the author of DO YOUR OWN DAMN LAUNDRY, which collects the 36 improvisational dialogues they performed together between 2011 and 2012. She was the founding editor, and for eight years editor in chief, of Open Space, SFMOMA'S interdisciplinary publishing platform. Suzanne lives in and is of California.

Mark Wallace is the author and editor of more than fifteen books and chapbooks of poetry, fiction, and essays. Most recently he has published a novel, Crab, and a book-length prose poem, Notes from the Center on Public Policy. Selections of his multi-part long poem The End of America, which he has been writing since 2005, have appeared in several chapbooks and in a number of journals. He lives in San Diego, California.
