Aaron Belz has published two books of poetry, The Bird Hoverer (BlazeVOX 2007) and Lovely, Raspberry (Persea Books, 2010), both of which have been reviewed glowingly in Boston Review and the latter of which was named by Books & Culture as a “Favorite Book of 2010.” John Ashbery writes, "Belz’s poetry reminds us that poetry should be bright, friendly, surprising, and totally committed to everything but itself. Reading him is like dreaming of a summer vacation and then taking it." For links to poems, reviews, tour dates, and other information please visit

Jake J. Thomas is a creative worker. He does his best to make poems, paintings, photographs, and stories--out of the horror called life--that express his sense of optimism about people, art and revolution (despite all the evidence that things are falling apart, have never been just, and are in desperate need of fixing). Above all, Jake J. Thomas believes in the power of creative work as a spark to begin the process of transforming our society into one in which we can actually live, into one where freedom is not merely a word that insults our intelligence. You can catch an occasional story or a new series of painting/ poems at his blog:
