An award winning writer, Joan Gelfand’s poetry, fiction, reviews and essays have appeared in national and international magazines, anthologies and literary journals including Rattle, Kalliope, The Toronto Quarterly, The Huffington Post and Eclipse. President of the Women’s National Book Association, Joan teaches in the California Poets in the Schools program. “A Dreamer’s Guide to Cities and Streams” was published by SF Bay Press in 2009 and her upcoming chapbook of short stories will be published by Cervena Barva Press in Fall 2010. Joan is also the Fiction Editor for Zeek magazine.

David Allen Sullivan was born in Illinois, and grew up in Vermont, with one year spent in Vienna—where his teacher, the novelist Jonathan Carroll, inspired him to write poetry (mostly bad Whitman knock-offs). He received a B.A. from the University of Chicago, where he edited The Chicago Literary Review, and went to graduate school at the University of California, Irvine. His dissertation was on the ethics of address in the poems of Emily Dickinson and Killarney Clary. He teaches English, Film, and Screenwriting at Cabrillo Community College, where he also edits the Porter Gulch Review with his students. He lives in Santa Cruz, California, with Cherie Barkey, and their two children, Jules and Amina Barivan.
