erica lewis lives in San Francisco where she is a fine arts publicist and ran the Canessa Reading Series. A graduate of Northwestern University and Mills College (where she was the recipient of the 2008 Mary Merritt Henry Prize for poetry), her work has appeared in various journals and anthologies. Books include murmur in the inventory (Shearsman Books, January 2013), the precipice of jupiter (Queue Books), and camera obscura (BlazeVox Books); the latter two books are collaborations with artist Mark Stephen Finein. She was born in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Adeena Karasick is a poet, media-artist and author of seven books of poetry and poetic theory: Most recently,This Poem (Talonbooks 2012), which opened on the McNally Best Seller list and voted top 5 books of 2012, All her work is marked with a neo-fluxus, post Flarffian conceptualist, urban, Jewish, feminist aesthetic that continually challenges linguistic habits and normative modes of meaning production. Engaged with the art of combination and turbulence of thought, it is a testament to the creative and regenerative power of language and its infinite possibilities for pushing meaning to the limits of its semantic boundaries. Her writing has been described as "electricity in language" (Nicole Brossard), "plural, cascading, exuberant in its cross-fertilization of punning and knowing, theatre and theory" (Charles Bernstein) "a tour de force of linguistic doublespeak" (Globe and Mail) and "opens up the possibilities of reading" (Vancouver Courier). She is Professor of Pop culture and Media Theory at Fordham University in New York.
