Producer-videographer of Poetry Thin Air Cable Show on MNN, Mitch Corber has read his mysterious musical poetry throughout the city. Awardee of a NYFA fellowship, he founded the Thin Air Video Poetry DVD Archives which include Ginsberg, Corso, Ashbery, Di Prima, and Cage, as well as dozens of contemporary NYC poets. Corber’s latest book is “Quinine,” and he’s appeared in Columbia Poetry Review, Nedge, Polarity, Blackbox Manifold, Listen Light, the Long Islander, Mirage and tight.


John J. Trause, nominated for a Pushcart Prize, has a chapbook Seriously Serial (Poets Wear Prada). His translations, poetry, and art appear in Sensations, Xavier Review, NowCulture, Off the Coast, Maintenant, Journal of NJ Poets, Lips, Xcp, Offerta Speciale, Plainsongs, US1 Worksheets, etc. His Latter-Day Litany was staged Off-Off Broadway and in revival. Trause participated in the City Lights Books 50th Anniversary celebration (Poetry Project, St. Mark’s) with Steven Van Zandt, Anne Waldman, and Karen Finley and was chosen with Jerome Rothenberg for the Visible Word exhibition reading (Stevens Institute), which paired poets and artists. He co-founded the WCW Poetry Coop. in Rutherford, NJ, serving as programmer and host. For the sake of art, Trause hung naked for one whole month in the summer of 2007 on the Art Wall of the Bowery Poetry Club. At various times in his life, he has been mistaken for being a priest, a policeman, a pimp, and a pornographer. He is none of these.
