Tetra Balestri is a recent resident of LA hailing from SF by way of NY. Her poems have appeared in the magazines Sal Mimeo and There Are Flying Planes and her chapbook, Cheap Imitations, was published by Green Zone in 2008. Her plays have been performed at Under St. Marks Theater and the Ontological Theater in New York as well as the Poet's Theater in San Francisco. She has worked as an archivist for poet Larry Fagin and as assistant editor and contributor to various Facts on File encyclopedias including Encyclopedia of European Peoples. She currently works at the Beyond Baroque Literary and Arts Center in Venice.

Tisa Bryant’s first book, Unexplained Presence (Leon Works, 2007), is a collection of original, hybrid fiction-essays that remix narratives from Eurocentric film, literature and visual arts and zoom in on the black presences operating within them. An excerpt from her novella, [the curator], was published by Belladonna Books, along with the work of filmmaker/writer Chris Kraus. Tisa is currently sketching out an historical novel, getting Vol. 2 of the hardcover annual, The Encyclopedia Project, she co-edits, ready to go to print, and she is very happy to be relocating to LA this fall to teach creative writing at CalArts.

Jennifer Nellis lives, teaches, and writes in the Inland Empire. Her poems can be found on Cricket Online Review and the forthcoming issue of mark(s). Her movie-telling/benshi pieces, A Dip in the Pool and Poison, have been performed in San Francisco, LA, Miami, and various living rooms across the country.

Mathew Timmons is a writer, curator and critic in Los Angeles. He is General Director of General Projects and he co-edits/curates Insert Press (w/ Stan Apps), LA-Lit (w/ Stephanie Rioux), Late Night Snack (w/ Harold Abramowitz) and is the Los Angeles editor of Joyland. A chapbook, Lip Service is recently out from Slack Buddha Press. His first full length book, The New Poetics (Les Figues Press) and his micro-book collaboration with Marcus Civin, a particular vocabulary (P S Books), are forthcoming. His work may be found in various journals, including: P-Queue, Holy Beep!, Flim Forum, The Physical Poets, Or, Moonlit, aslongasittakes, eohippus labs, Area Sneaks, Artweek, Artillery, The Magazine and The Encyclopedia Project.
