GennaRose Nethercott’s book The Lumberjack’s Dove (Ecco/HarperCollins) was selected by Louise Glück as a winner of the National Poetry Series for 2017. Her other recent projects include A Ghost of Water (an ekphrastic collaboration with printmaker Susan Osgood) and the narrative song collection Modern Ballads. She has been a writer in residence at The Vermont Studio Center, Art Farm Nebraska, Shakespeare & Company bookstore, and elsewhere, and is the recipient of a 2018 Mass Cultural Council Artist Fellowship. She tours nationally and internationally composing poems-to-order for strangers on an antique typewriter, and is the founder of The Traveling Poetry Emporium, an itinerant team of poets-for-hire. Raised in Vermont, she has lived in many cities across America and Europe, but is always drawn back to the forest.
Ben Clark (MFAW 2012) lives in Chicago, where he works as an editor for Muzzle Magazine. His first book, Reasons to Leave the Slaughter, was released by Write Bloody Publishing in 2011. His second collection, if you turn around I will turn around, was released by Thoughtcrime Press in 2015.
