Robert Gibbons grew up in Belle Glade, Florida, the eldest of five children, and earned a B.S. in History from Florida A&M. In 2007, he moved to New York City in search of his muse, Langston Hughes. Gibbons has studied with such master poets as Cornelius Eady, Marilyn Nelson, Klmiko Hahn, and Nathalie Handal, and has participated in workshops at Cave Canem and the 92Y. His work has been published in numerous anthologies including The Brownstone Poets Anthology, Dinner with the Muse (Ra Rays Press), The Cartier Street Review, Nomad’s Choir, and Maintenant 6: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Art & Literature (Three Rooms Press). His poetry may also be heard on the CDBrain Ampin’ (Logo Chrysalis Productions).
Yi Wu is a Chinese-born poet who calls New York his home after years of drifting along the East Coast. He has been scribbling verses since middle school and was drawn at the time to the poetry’s infinite potential for both elegance and transgression. His work has appeared in Uppagus, New Verse News and Clockwise Cat, and his collection A Fistful of Moss and Poppy Seeds was released in February 2016.
