Neil Alger went to Brown and read a lot of books there; but not all of them. He takes pictures because he's really really terrible at drawing (although, he did just start his first paint by number). He also spends a lot of time sitting at his desk at Small Press Distribution thinking about books, and talking to Brent about Hooke Press. He enjoys his friends. He uses his words.

Liz Young is a Bay Area poet working toward her Ph.D in Comparative Literature at UC Berkeley. She is currently in the midst of a dissertation which examines the impact of translation on the development of the Catullan corpus in late Republican Rome and the 20th c. United States. Last year she organized the Cabinet of the Muses inter-arts poetry festival. Her poems have appeared in a number of journals including Aufgabe, Crowd, Kiosk, The Poker, and The Common Weal.

Stephanie Young's first book, Telling the Future Off, was recently published by Tougher Disguises Press. She's the editor of Bay Poetics, due out from Faux Press in 2006, and hosted a series of readings in her home from 2003-05. Stephanie lives in Oakland by the lake, works at Mills College, and wishes she had more time to spend here:
