Amy Marie Bucciferro is a poet, comedian, and critic. Her poetry has appeared in a number of journals, and she has received awards from the Folger Shakespeare Library and the Academy of American Poets. She is currently an editor at Madhatters’ Review.

Orin Buck is a multimedia artist working in videography, photography, computer art, painting, drawing and music. In 1979, computers seemed to him to be the future of art, so, with the goal of uniting his interests in abstract painting and music, throughout the 1980s he created algorithmic computer video art/music with cheap home computers. After that his interests expanded into using non-computer materials for video art. To make a living, he branched off into web design, graphic design, and professional videography. Orin lives and works in New York City. His art can be seen here.

She’s the author of a poetry chapbook, collaborative CD, and digital film. A collection of her short fictions, fusions and poems will be published in 2010. Works may or will be found in numerous journals, including American Letters & Commentary, Diagram, Exquisite Corpse, Fiction International, First Intensity, LIT, and Notre Dame Review, and anthologies, including The Penguin Book of Australian Women Poets, Heide Hatry: Heads and Tales, and Online Writings: The Best of the First Ten Years. Her works have been translated into several languages. Her blog can be found here.
