My full-length book, Where We Think It Should Go, can be yours via Octopus Books, Small Press Distribution, or Amazon. We better celebrate these hard copies while we can. When I'm not writing poetry, I teach amazing young people who are blind. I believe in a healthier future.

Andrew Kenower was born in New Jersey. He recently co-founded Trafficker Press and a website of poetry recordings dubbed A Voice Box.

Lily Brown was born in Boston, MA and has lived in California for three years. She is about to complete her MFA at Saint Mary's College. Her poems have appeared in recent issues of Fence, Octopus and Typo, and are forthcoming in Tarpaulin Sky and Cannibal. Her chapbook, The Renaissance Sheet, was recently published by Octopus Books.

Adam Watkins graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Finance and subsequently moved to Chicago where his corporate fate awaited him. After a year in the cubicles, he left the Midwest for the St. Mary's MFA Program. Adam has been nominated for the Best New Poets Anthology and his work can be found in the Spring 2007 issue of Dislocate.

Sharon Lynn Osmond lives inside a sentient Oakland garden with her husband, Dennis, and her calico cat, Bone-Crusher. Before entering St. Mary's MFA program in poetry, she was a professional garden designer and landscape contractor, obsessed with plants and their
lovely Latin names. Her poems have appeared or will appear in Eleven-Eleven, Five Fingers Review, Xantippe, and Bird Dog. Her review of cloudlife, a collection of poems by Stefanie Marlis appears in Poetry Southeast, and her interview with Forrest Gander is featured in this issue of MARY Magazine. She was the lucky recipient last year of the Agnes Butler Scholarship for Excellence in Poetry.
