Amanda Davidson is a San Francisco writer and image-maker. Her writing has appeared in such publications as Baby, Remember My Name: An Anthology of New Queer Girl Writing, Other Magazine and online at the Marjorie Wood Gallery. Come On, Big Empty, a film collaboration with Kirthi Nath, played recently at the APAture and 3rd i festivals. Davidson is currently working on a multimedia poem called Goodbye, Meat Pants: Imaginary Postcards from a Real War.

Rodney Koeneke is the author of Musee Mechanique (BlazeVOX Books, 2006) and Rouge State (Pavement Saw, 2003). Empires of the Mind: I.A. Richards and Basic English in China (Stanford University Press, 2004) is a souvenir from his history days that's unlikely to have much bearing on this reading. His work has been read or performed at Small Press Traffic's Poets Theater, the Poetry Center at SFSU, the Pacific Film Archive, the San Francisco Cinematheque, and the 2006 Flarf Festival in New York. He's recently left San Francisco for Portland, OR for dark economic reasons.

Most recently, Stephen Vincent is the author of Walking (from Junction Press), Triggers (a Shearsman ebook) and Sleeping With Sappho (a faux ebook.) In the spring, Junction Press will publish Walking Theory, his collected poems from “the feet up.” This evening he will read work from his most recent ‘transversion’ projects, including Tenderly (improvisations on Stein’s Tender Buttons and Jack Spicer in Glasgow ( improvisation on Spicer’s Language, including some letters to Jack). Vincent’s blog (http://stephenvincent.net/blog/) includes various excerpts from these works.
