Bios:
Elizabeth Harrington has a Ph.D. in psychology and works at a market research firm in New York. She grew up in Oklahoma, which is the emotional and physical setting for much of her poetry. Her poems have appeared in several journals, including: The Hudson Review, Field, Nimrod, The Sun, Rattapallax, The Paterson Review, and The Spoon River Poetry Review. She was a winner of the Allen Ginsberg Poetry Award (granted by The Poetry Project, Passaic Community College), first runner-up in the dA Center for the Arts Poetry Prize, and a finalist in Comstock Review’s Muriel Craft Bailey Award, and in The Ledge and Grayson Books poetry chapbook contests. She is included in an anthology of poems about divorce (“Split Verse: Poems to Heal the Heart”).



Mindy Levokove is a multi-media performance artist who uses dance, music, costumes, vocalization, video, and spoken word. She enjoys working with people of varied backgrounds, abilities, and interests.  She particularly enjoys working with diverse populations. Her fascination with dance reflects the environment and she is partial to tribal, ritual, and expressionistic type of performance, relying heavily on ethnic forms for style and structure. Mindy particularly loves to improvise and perform with folks who want to try something “new.”  She hosts a reading series at the Community Garden at 6th Street and Avenue B in the East Village.
