Alli WARREN is the author of GRINDIN (Lew Gallery), ACTING OUT (Editions Louis Wain), WELL-MEANING WHITE GIRL (Mitzvah Chaps), and COUSINS (Lame House Press). With Michael Nicoloff, she wrote EUNOIA (Abraham Lincoln) and BRUISED DICK. In 2013, City Lights will publish her first book. She co-edits the Poetic Labor Project, maintains a weblog, and lives in Oakland.
Brandon BROWN is the author of THE PERSIANS BY AESCHYLUS, THE POEMS OF GAIUS VALERIUS CATULLUS, and FLOWERING MALL. In 2012, his debut play CHARLES BAUDELAIRE THE VAMPIRE SLAYER was staged at Small Press Traffic’s Poet’s Theater. He publishes small press materials under the imprint OMG! and lives in Oakland.
Anselm BERRIGAN is working on a kind of excavation process, the consequences of which will hopefully remain tbd. A half-book, or a book written halfly, with John Coletti having written the other halfly, called SKASERS, should be ejected from Flowers & Cream soon. Another book, PRIMITIVE STATE, might come out some time down the road. He would like some decent-to-well paying but not too overbearing work starting in February.
John COLETTI is the author of PHYSICAL KIND (Yo-Yo-Labs, 2005), SAME ENEMY RAINBOW (fewer & further, 2008), and MUM HALO (Rust Buckle Books, 2010) which is available at http://rustbucklebooks.blogspot.com/. He recently finished serving as editor of The Poetry Project Newsletter.
Nicole REBER DJed her first party in the 7th grade when she made a mix CD for an ice cream social. She spends most of her lunch breaks making collages and has made a habit of successfully smuggling her Xacto knife through TSA security checkpoints. She is currently working on a set of poems inspired by a recent backpacking trip across Eastern Europe. You can follow her at nicolereber.tumblr.com.
Private Line is operated by Kendra Sullivan, Megan Ewing, Dylan Gauthier & Macgregor Card.
