BIOS:


Virginia Crawford is the author of Touch (2011, Finishing Line Press) and co-editor of the anthology Poetry Baltimore. Ms. Crawford is a graduate of Emerson College, Boston, and the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. She is also a teacher with the Maryland State Arts Council’s Poets in the Schools program. Her poems have been published in numerous journals, including Gargoyle, Baltimore Review, Maryland Poetry Review and Potomac: Journal of Poetry and Politics. She is currently co-editing an anthology of student poetry with Laura Shovan.
Feel free to include this link to her recent radio interview:



G. E. Schwartz, who has studied with Irish-American poet John Montague and Joseph Brodsky, was an original member of Solomons Ramada, as well as Faking Trains. He’s the author of Only Others Are: Poems (Legible Press), Odd Fish (Argotist ebooks), World (Furniture Press), and Living In Tongues (Theenk/Loose Gravel Press). In short, he lives to regenerate, in the manner of new trees that are renewed with new foliage, pure and disposed to mount unto the stars.
