Robert Duncan said of Beverly Dahlen, "The psychic
life she draws in writing may be drawn from her own
psychic life, but here its body is the text and it
speaks to the psyche of the reader as a reader."

Press), Out of the Third (Momo's Press) and 5 volumes
of A Reading, published variously by Momo's Press,
Chax Press, Potes and Poets, and Instance Press. A

Francisco for many years.

Susanne Dyckman lives in Albany, CA, where she hosts a
summer backyard reading series. She is the author of
two chapbooks, Transiting Indigo (Etherdome Press) and
Counterweight (Woodland Editions). Her work has most
recently appeared or is forthcoming in the journals
26, Marginalia and First Intensity. A volume of
poetry, equilibrium' s form, will be published by
Shearsman Books, UK, in 2007.

Kate Greenstreet�s chapbook, Learning the Language,
was published by Etherdome Press in 2005. Her first
full-length book, case sensitive, will be out from
Ahsahta Press in September 2006. Visit her online at
