JOEL LEWIS' most recent book is "Learning From New Jersey". He edited the selected talks of Ted Berrigan, the selected poems of lefty poet/anthologist Walter Lowenfels and an anthology of contemporary NJ poets. In addition to hundreds of reviews, essays and polemics, he dreamed up the now abolished NJ Poet Laureate position that was such a headache for Amiri Baraka. He is at work on a memoir about being a child of a Holocaust Survivor. He lives in Hoboken with his wife, film theorist Sandy Flitterman-Lewis.

ADRIAN MOENS is a multi-media artist and writer currently living in Chicago. Adrian has exhibited and performed work in the United States, most recently for the Electronic Literature Organization Conference at Brown University. The primary focus in much of his work is the extraction and transmutation of language from various linguistic
and non linguistic sources.

MARTHE REED has published two books, Tender Box, A Wunderkammer (Lavender Ink) and Gaze (Black Radish Books), as well as two chapbooks, (em)bodied bliss and zaum alliterations, both part of the Dusie Kollektiv Series. Her poetry has appeared in New American Writing, Golden Handcuffs Review, New Orleans Review, HOW2, MiPoesias, and Exquisite Corpse, among others, and is forthcoming from Ekleksographia and Fairy Tale Review. Her manuscript, an earth of sweetness dances in the vein, was a finalist in Ahsahta Press’ 2006 Sawtooth Poetry Contest. She edits Nous-zot Press, and directs the Creative Writing Program at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette.

RED ROVER SERIES is curated by Laura Goldstein and Jennifer Karmin. Each event is designed as a reading experiment with participation by local, national, and international writers, artists, and performers. The series was founded in 2005 by Amina Cain and Jennifer Karmin.
